Fascinating

...that a baby's stem cells stay inside his mother's body for decades, healing her and repairing any damaged tissues. I have been heard more than once complaining that it just isn't fair that we mothers have the power to generate and gestate youth itself, but can't use any of it to make ourselves any younger. Well, it looks like I was wrong all along. Nature is a beautiful thing and nature's god is very good.

Well, no wonder we women live longer. I know, from my brother the ob-gyn, that we live longer because, due to menstruation and the whole cycle of life within us, our bodies MUST regenerate, heal, keep themselves up; whereas men's bodies have no such requirement. It is DELIGHTFUL to read this news! It is good indeed to be a woman!

Very cool.

That is cool. Even cooler, though, (well, maybe not really, but still very cool), is that you've opened comments!
