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.

    An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to publish more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically folks don't speak about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

    The passing WILD depart WILD symbols on their way. It features a
    mini-game that features winnings, free spins, win multipliers, the activation of
    passing WILD during the free spins and a progressive Jackpot.
    There are quite a few sites where one can go to to play online slot games without cost.
    Land three more gong scatters through the bonus and you’ll retrigger another 10 free spins.
    That makes it straightforward to do three or 4 issues directly in your tablet,
    which is great for multitasking junkies. The goal of the sport is to get three Wheel icons on the reels
    to then achieve access to the Bonus Wheel. Then glue
    the CD pieces onto the Styrofoam. I shall search for and say, 'Who am
    I, then? The adapters look identical to a cassette tape
    with a plug that fits into the headphone jack of your portable gadget.

    Ohanian is quoted as saying, "There is an unprecedented alternative to fuse social and crypto in a method that feels like a Web2 social product however with the added incentive of empowering customers with actual ownership," and that
    Solana could be the network that makes this doable.
