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.

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive
    the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

    I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering
    problems with your site. It appears as if some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing many months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop
