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.

    the pictures on this blog loading? I'm trying to find out if its
    a problem on my end or if it's the blog. Any feedback
    would be greatly appreciated.

    Right here is the right website for everyone who really wants to understand this topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need toÖHaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that's been written about for years. Wonderful stuff, just great!

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you should write more about this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don't discuss such subjects. To the next! Cheers!!

    I've been browsing online more than 3 hours as of late,
    yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours.

    It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent
    content material as you probably did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future
    but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
