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.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I'd
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts before writing. I have had a tough time
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Thank you!

    Iím impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog thatís equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
