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.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from
    an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

    I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start.
    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

    I think everything posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?

    I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if
    you added a title to maybe grab folk's attention? I
    mean Having more children could slow aging is a little boring.
    You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create article titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
