Women with more kids live longer: study

Women can expect to live longer with each child they bear, a pattern especially noticeable for those with many children, according to Australian researchers, who nonetheless said that women shouldn’t have too many children because large families are bad for the environment, reports LifeSiteNews.com.

The Sydney Morning Herald on Friday reported the results of a study by researchers at the University of New South Wales, which analyzed 1,200 women over the age of 60 since 1988.

Women with six or more children were found to be 40 percent less likely to die during the 16-year follow-up period than women with no children, an expectancy that increased predictably with each child they bore. Researchers said that, although it was not known exactly why children increased life expectancy, the results corresponded to the findings of studies in other countries as well.
