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.

    Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you just can do with a few percent to power the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.|

    Hi would you mind sharing 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 making a decision 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 Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
