For some people, having kids is a no-brainer. For others, however, it’s a less easy decision to make.
But if you’re looking for a way to live longer, new findings may just help you make a decision.
A study has found that parents live longer than their childless counterparts.
This is despite the fact that most parents joke about the trials and tribulations of bringing up kids shaving years off their lives.
The report from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found that once you reach the age of 60, men and women live longer if they have at least one child.
The researchers used Swedish census data from over 1.4 million men and women born between the years of 1911 and 1925 to draw their conclusions.
