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.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
    I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links
    or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

    I do believe all the ideas you've offered for your post. They're very convincing
    and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for
    newbies. Could you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.
