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.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick
    and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for
    another platform. I would be awesome if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hi terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount
    of work? I have virtually no knowledge of programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog
    in the near future. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to ask.

    Thank you!
