Kim and Kanye Our Baby’s a Saint!!!

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West have named their new baby.

Kardashian West has tracked her pregnancy online for her 37 million Twitter followers, posting an image late Friday of her bare belly with the caption, “Ready whenever you are lol.” Kardashian, 35, and West, 38, were married last year in Florence, Italy, in a gala ceremony filmed for E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” West proposed to his bride in October 2013, renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion. Despite nothing official being released about the name, some fans thought they had it nailed as “Storm Desmond” – the name given to a powerful storm that battered the UK the same weekend – which had been trending on Twitter. West was in New York earlier this week for the Footwear News Achievement Awards, where he gave a rambling 20-minute acceptance speech after his Adidas Yeezy Boost sneaker was named shoe of the year.

Saint West. 12.05.15. 8 pounds, 1 ounce.” Those who placed any bets with Paddy Power for the new baby being named Easton West, South West or Robert – the name of Ms Kardashian’s late father – will be sorely disappointed. At Victoria’s Federation University, molecular biologist Fadi Charchar is looking at how exercise affects the tiny caps called telomeres on the end of strands of DNA. When they start to fray and shrink as they can with the influence of age and bad habits like smoking, our DNA is more likely to deteriorate and increase our risk of disease. But in the last few years a number of studies have found that when people do regular exercise, especially moderate to intense aerobic exercise, their telomeres don’t degrade as quickly, explains Professor Charchar of the University’s Faculty of Science and Technology.

Two years ago his own study of a small group of 40-ish ultra marathon runners who typically ran 40 to 100 kilometres a week found that, compared to sedentary people, their telomeres were 11 per cent longer – something which knocked 16 years off their biological age. Still, says Chachar, you may not need to run marathons to do your telomeres a good turn – as the New York Times reported recently, US research looking at the exercise habits of 6500 people taking part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, linked even modest amounts of physical activity with a three per cent lower risk of having very short telomeres, but the odds improved dramatically in people who moved the most and who varied the kind of exercise they did – their risk of very short telomeres was almost 60 per cent lower.

We often assume that exercise improves our health by delivering more oxygen to our body, but in his research Fadi Charchar found that the effect on telomeres was independent of oxygen uptake. “We don’t know the exact mechanism but we think it might be the effect of a gene called TERT which helps maintain and lengthen telomeres – our research has found that exercise may enhance the function of TERT,” he says. “In addition exercise causes changes in the DNA structure itself that can result in considerable benefits to cells that can be passed on to future generations in sperm cells.” But this link between exercise and longer telomeres is just part of the much bigger picture of epigenetics, the field of science that looks at how our lifestyle habits and environment can change how our genes behave in our body for good or bad, says Charchar. So far, aerobic exercise is looking good, says Chachar. “We’ve just done a study into the effects of resistance training on telomeres and we found that it helps a bit but not as much as aerobic exercise does,” he adds. It’s no surprise that already there are anti-ageing supplements claiming to protect telomeres starting to make an appearance online, often with high price tags.
