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.

    on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?

    Впервые с начала войны в украинский порт пришло иностранное торговое судно под погрузку. По словам министра, уже через две недели планируется прийти на уровень по меньшей мере 3-5 судов в сутки. Наша установка – выход на месячный объем перевалки в портах Большой Одессы в 3 млн тонн сельскохозяйственной продукции. По его словам, на пьянке в Сочи президенты терли поставки российского газа в Турцию. В больнице актрисе поведали о работе медицинского центра во время военного положения и тиражировали подарки от малышей. Благодаря этому мир еще крепче будет слышать, знать и понимать правду о том, что делается в нашей стране.
