Having more children could slow aging

In the journal PLOS One, researchers reveal that women who had more children had longer telomeres than women who had fewer children.

Telomeres are caps at the end of each DNA strand that protect our chromosomes - thread-like structures that contain all our genetic information - from damage.

Each time a cell replicates, telomeres become shorter. They eventually become so short that they stop protecting chromosomes, leaving them vulnerable to damage, which in turn causes our cells to age and stop functioning effectively.

Previously, animal studies have supported the "life history theory," suggesting that higher reproductive behavior is associated with accelerated biological aging.

However, this latest study, led by Prof. Pablo Nepomnaschy and Cindy Barha - both of Simon Fraser University in Canada - contradicts this theory.

    I visit every day a few websites and blogs to read posts, except this blog provides quality based writing.|

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks a lot!|

    Dalam beberapa detik terakhir, pragmatic demo dengan maxwin telah menjadi semakin populer di kalangan pemain judi online di
    Indonesia. Situs-situs judi terkemuka menawarkan berbagai permainan slot online yang menjanjikan kesempatan besar untuk meraih jackpot maxwin yang
    menggiurkan. Hal ini telah menciptakan fenomena di mana pemain mencari situs slot
    online yang d kasih pengalaman gacor yang menghasilkan kemenangan besar.

    Salah satu alasan utama mengapa pragmatic demo semakin diminati adalah kemudahan aksesnya.
    Pemain dapat dengan mudah memainkan slot online melalui perangkat komputer,
    laptop, atau smartphone mereka. Ini memungkinkan para pemain untuk
    merasakan sensasi dan keseruan dari slot online gacor kapan saja dan di mana saja tanpa
    harus pergi ke kasino fisik. Selain itu, ada juga opsi untuk
    bermain secara gratis dengan akun test sebelum memutuskan untuk
    bermain main uang sungguhan.

    Right now it sounds like Wordpress is the best blogging platform out there
    right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

    Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to
    ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount work?
    I'm brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal every day.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little research on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I stumbled
    upon it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the
    meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this issue here
    on your website.
