Babies Born to Older Moms May Be Smarter, Healthier
Children born to older mothers may be healthier, taller and obtain more education than kids of younger mothers, a new study has claimed. The benefits associated with being born in a later year outweigh the biological risks associated with being born to an older mother, researchers said. The reason is that in industrialised countries educational opportunities are increasing, and people are getting healthier by the year. In other words, it pays off to be born later, they said.
