The finding that courtship behaviour in mutant flies can change according to how they are reared suggests that experience can shape behaviour.Yamamoto said he was “terribly surprised” by the results because he had previously never doubted that male-to-male courtship in fru mutant males was “solely genetically programmed” The findings appeared in the journal Nature Communications For all the

had been pregnant at least four times were less likely to die from cardiovascular disease than those who’d never been expecting Researchers said that could be due to the protective effects of pregnancy-related hormones as well as the extra social support that comes with having more children — or the fact that women who are able to get pregnant more often are healthier to begin with It’s not clear that getting pregnant more often protects women’s heartsnecessarily “It’s just one more little piece of the puzzle that maybe physicians should be aware of or think about” said Donna Kritz-Silversteinfrom the University of CaliforniaSan Diego “Heart disease is one of the biggest problems facing women today It’s the leading cause of death among women in the United States” Kritz-Silversteinwho worked on the studytold Reuters Health Butshe added”Many women don’t perceive themselves to be at risk” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionheart disease kills more than 600000 Americans a yearabout half of them women The new studyled by Marni Jacobs at UCSDinvolved close to 1300 women from Rancho Bernardo in Southern California In the mid-1980swhen participants were in their early 70son averageresearchers asked them how many times they had been pregnant and given birth They also surveyed women about lifestyle habits related to heart healthsuch as smoking and exerciseand measured their cholesterolblood pressureheight and weight For the next 19 yearsthe researchers brought women in for regular clinic visitssent them annual questionnaires and used death records to track their diagnoses Over that follow-up707 womenor about 55 percentdied of various causes Just under half of those deaths were due to heart and vascular diseasesincluding heart failureheart attacks and strokes Compared to women who had never been pregnantthose who reported at least four pregnancies were about 35 percent less likely to die of any heart or vascular diseaseincluding half as likely to be killed by a stroke or another condition related to artery build-up and high blood pressure That was after taking into account women’s age and weight The trend held up when the researchers looked specifically at the number of times women had given birthand not just how often they’d been pregnant — but in that analysisthey couldn’t be sure the lower rates of cardiovascular deaths that came with more kids weren’t due to chance The authors wrote in Fertility and Sterilitythat finding may simply be due to the smaller sample of women who had four or more kids — 131 of them — compared to the 240 that had been pregnant at least four times in their study On the other end of the spectrum316 women said they had never been pregnant and 406 had never given birth There was no link between the number of times women were pregnant or gave birth and their chance of dying from all causes combined during the study The researchers said the findings may not apply to postmenopausal women in generalas the women in their study had especially long life spanswere relatively well-off financially and had good access to health care But they proposed a few explanations for the link between the number of times women had been pregnant and their chance of dying from cardiovascular disease For examplewomen who are pregnant more times produce more estrogen over the long runand longer lifetime exposure to the hormone may have protective heart effects Alternativelyheart-related deaths could be reduced in women who have lots of grown children and social support around them as they age FinallyKritz-Silverstein and her colleagues wrote that higher fertility may just reflect better general health — although their associations stood up when they took into account blood pressure and cholesterol readings as well as lifestyle habits “It’s really hard to tease out” the causeshe said “We’re just speculating — there’s no real way that we can know that from our data” Kritz-Silverstein added that future research into the link between pregnancy history and cardiovascular disease could help get at some of the differing heart risks and protective effects in men and womenincluding the “not-so-obvious factors” SOURCE: bitly/rFDYGI Fertility and Sterilityonline November 292011 For all the latest Lifestyle News download shlf1314n Express App More Related News at the
