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.

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be exciting to read through articles from other authors and practice a little something from other sites.

    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would appreciate your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.|

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Having read this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

    Es el único sistema seguro (y actualizado al día) de no caer en las garras de esas redes de estafadores que se multiplican en Internet y que son los Servicios Piratas. Material eléctrico y Reparación Electrodomésticos Bafer en Leganés, somos una tienda de electricidad especializada en iluminación de bajo consumo y reparación de electrodomésticos de varias marcas.

    Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
    platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations?
    Appreciate it!

    I'm gone to convey my little brother, that he should also go to see this website on regular basis to obtain updated from newest reports.|

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you should publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don't discuss such issues. To the next! Kind regards!!|
