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.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite
    reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people
    think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

    Hi there exceptional blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work? I have very little understanding of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I just had to ask. Appreciate it!
