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.

    I believe what you said made a lot of sense. However, what
    about this? suppose you were to write a killer title?
    I ain't suggesting your information isn't good., but suppose you added a post title that makes people
    desire more? I mean Having more children could slow aging is
    a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's front page
    and see how they create post titles to grab people to click.

    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of
    hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to
    protect against hackers?

    It's very trouble-free to find out any topic
    on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this web page.
