If you sometimes feel like your kids are going to send you to an early grave - a new study finds the reverse is true, especially for women.

Danish scientists found parents live longer than childless couples who tried to have kids but couldn't.

Researchers found people who adopt a child also live longer.

Previous research shows parents tend to have healthier behaviors than people without children.

And a British study tricked people into thinking they were full.

Researchers gave one group of volunteers a small portion of food.

A second group was shown a large portion, but then given less food without anyone knowing.

Even though both groups ate the same amount - those who thought they had a larger portion stayed full longer.
