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.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog
    platform you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but
    I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do
    write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
