Inthe present work we show that the existence of non-vanishing torsion field may solve, at least, one of the problems FRW-cosmology, the particle horizons problem. The field equations of general relativity (GR) are written in a space having non-vanishing torsion, the absolute parallelism (AP) space. An AP-Structure, satisfying the cosmological principle, is used to construct a world model. Energy density and pressure, purely induced by torsion, are defined from the building blocks of the AP-geometry using GR. When these quantities are used in the FRW-dynamical equations, we get a world model free from particle horizons.
