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 don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with
    your site. It appears as though some of the text in your posts are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen before.
    Appreciate it

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what
    youre talking about, why waste your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?

    Specify a sealed combustion furnace or boiler, which is able to deliver outside air instantly into the burner and
    exhaust flue gases (combustion products) on to the outside, without the need for a draft hood or damper.

    I am very happy to read this. This is the type of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that's at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best doc.
