Study: Older Moms Live Longer
Study: Older Moms Live Longer

A new Boston University study says that moms who bear children after the age of 33 have a greater chance of living longer than women who had their last child before 30, reports The Washington Post. “We think the same genes that allow a woman to naturally have a kid at an older age are the same genes that play a really important role in slowing down the rate of aging and decreasing the risk for age-related diseases, such as heart attacks, stroke, diabetes and cancer,” said Thomas Perls, a professor who specializes in geriatrics at Boston University Medical Center. He went on to cite Halle Berry, who had her second child at age 46, as an example of someone who probably has those genes.
