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.

    Upon reflection, I thought this article was timely and relevant.
    Thank you very much for creating this write-up; in the
    event more writers pen time-worthy and sensible prose,
    I contemplate everybody'd just about all be in a far better scenario.
    In my experience, I think we should place our attention more on staying in shape and
    eating properly and free from being always in front of the computer or I-Phone screen.
    Set off outside. And, remember, that usually means not keeping
    your mind stuck in the phone the whole while also,
    and live life with appreciation for the natural world.
    That helps people feel sane and feeling joyous.
    Thinking about deep philosophical subjects is furthermore some other sort of experience that can assist us to make the discovery of self understanding.
