Not Having Kids Can Be a Killer

I always got the impression from my friends that have children, that the stress and responsibility of having children would shorten their lives.

Yet a study in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health reveals parents may live longer because of having children.  This study is based on 21,000 couples seeking in-vitro fertility treatments.

The authors discovered that women who were unsuccessful in having a child were four times more likely to die prematurely than women who were mothers from health issues such as cancer, circulatory disease and even accidents.

The study also found that men were twice as likely to die early.

So even though being a parent deprives you, in some cases, of having less sleep, less money and having a clean house, it can be very healthy.  Who would have thought.
