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.

A través del ciclo de creación de prototipos, pruebas y fabricación, la impresión 3D y el mecanizado CNC se pueden usar individualmente combinados en cada una de las fases del proceso.

    Antes de la revolución industrial este tipo de procesos se hacían a mano en talleres de madera, de forja cerámicos, entre otros, y no se conocían como mecanizado. Así pues hablamos de centros de mecanizado de 5 ejes y tornos multifunción, que permiten obtener una pieza compleja, totalmente terminada, partiendo de un tocho de una barra de metal y todo ello en un único amarre.
