Late Mothers Live Longer

May 04, 2009
Women, who gave birth at older age, are more likely to live longer, a new study says. Late female fertility was linked to longevity not only for women themselves, but for their relatives as well.

The study conducted at the University of Utah analyzed the data of 1.6 million Utah Mormon pioneers and their offspring from the Utah Population Database. The researchers studied the data on 11,604 Utah men, who were born between 1800 and 1869, having one or more sisters, who lived no less than to age 50; and the data on 6,206 Quebec men who lived between 1670 and 1750, having minimum one sister who lived to 50 or older.

Researchers examined the data on pioneers to find the link between fertility and longevity because women did not use modern birth control at that time.

The study showed that women, who gave birth after 45 or later, had 14 to 17 percent less chances to die after age 50, if compared to women who had not children after age 40. Also men, who had sisters, who gave birth after age 45 or later, were less likely to die after age 50 if compared to men without sisters, who had late fertility. The men's wives did not have increased lifespan, meaning that genetic factor may be linked to late female fertility and longevity in the family.

Ken R. Smith, the leading author of the study at the University of Utah said that the fact of having a female relative in a family, who gave birth at older age naturally, may indicate that a person will live longer.

Earlier, several studies showed that women with later start of menopause are more likely to reproduce and live longer. Scientists explain that the same gene might be responsible for longer fertility and longevity and the chances of living longer increase if women in a family gave birth at older age.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into<a href="http://zfajyzyk.com"> snrtaitg</a> my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

David WolfePosted on July 26, 2013 at 3:29 pm | Nascent is really good a great ionide to introduce into your supplement regime. Electrodine is the strongest out of those Iodines. Recommended to use that ionide once you've become accustomed to using the lest potent ionides. Be sure to follow dosage instructions as these are much more potent than the regular non-monotomic ionide. http://qdujonqw.com [url=http://wemlcohedni.com]wemlcohedni[/url] [link=http://ctntaor.com]ctntaor[/link]

I love the non-cluttered look...especially as I look around my ocfife wondering "how could I do that?" I say the same thing about your space, Jen. I'm spending the rest of my weekend in pursuit of just a "touch" of that look! Love the post.
