Tips For Men To Look Younger

Lose a pound in weight

Excess weight is strongly correlated with joint pain, mostly because of the stress it places on these vulnerable parts of the body. Even shedding a pound can make a difference.
A landmark study in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism showed that for each single pound of body weight lost by people with osteoarthritis pain in the knee, there is a 4lb reduction in knee loading, says physiotherapist Sammy Margo.
That equates to the same sort of kneepounding you d experience if you walked 4,800 miles.

  • Spelling
      [singular noun + 's] : my father[s]car
      [plural noun + '] : my parent[s] house
      [irregular plural + 's] : the children [s] room
    We sometimes just add an apostrophe (') to a singular noun ending in -s: Socrates' ideas. But's is more common: Charles's wife.
    We can add's to a whole phrase: the man next door's wife.
  • Pronunciation
      The ending 's is pronounced just like a plural ending . The apostrophe (') in a form like parents' does not change the pronunciation at all.
  • Possessives are not usually used together with other determiners.
    The car that is John's is John's car, not the John's car.
      Have you met Jack's new girl-friend?
      (NOT . . . the Jack's new girl-friend?)
      For the structure a friend of John's etc,
  • We can use the possessive without a following noun.
      'Whose is that?' Peter's '
      We often talk about shops and people's houses in this way.
      Alice is at the hairdresser's
      We had a nice time at John and Susan's last night.
