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.

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it difficult 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?
    Cheers

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have
    been using? I'm having some small security problems
    with my latest site and I would like to find something
    more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
