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.

    Assuming you’re okay with paying your kids equitably for equal manage, you need to give them jobs to do. A correctly instituted household bater.sareaf.se/vuodenajat/piirretty-ruusu.php chore schedule is the acutance of a win-win. For parents, it’s a dumping settle instead of mundane, low-value tasks quest of which they dearth the time or patience. For kids, it’s a buffet of common-sensical scholarship opportunities.

    Hello, I do think your web site could possibly be having internet
    browser compatibility problems. Whenever I look at your web site in Safari,
    it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful site!
