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.

    Appreciating the time and energy you put into your website
    and detailed information you offer. It's good
    to come across a blog every once in a while that
    isn't the same outdated rehashed information. Fantastic read!
    I've bookmarked your site and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding
    knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
