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.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific matter and it really does offer me a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from everything that I have seen, I simply just hope as other remarks stack on that folks continue to be on point and not embark on a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this superb point and whilst I do not go along with it in totality, I regard the point of view.
