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.

    Having read this I believed it was really enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this short article together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

    obviously like your web-site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of
    your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it
    very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless
    I'll certainly come again again.
