first_imgToday was payback time for the many long-suffering friends of Donegal businessman Paddy Bourne.The retired millionaire entrepreneur reached a certain milestone.He has sworn friends not to tell people that he has reached the half century so we won’t tell anyone either. Needless to say Paddy, who is originally from Kilcar, doesn’t look a day over 49.Having earned his millions from his successful concrete business, Paddy now swaps his time between his adopted home in Letterkenny and his villas in Spain and Florida.His many friends including those at Donaghey Motorhomes today erected special signs at the Dry Arch Roundabout wishing Paddy all the best for his big celebrations.We’ve been told people should spare a thought for Paddy’s long suffering wife Patricia and three daughters. So if you happen to pass Paddy in his 15 year old Isuzu Trooper (even though he can afford a 2012 Merc), wish him all the best.From the bog to Bermuda – a genuine Donegal success story!  CEMENT MAN PADDY IS ROCK SOLID – EVEN AT 50! was last modified: June 7th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Eat more of this one type of fruit to ease joint pain, says expert

first_imgIf you’re one of the 10 million Brits who suffer from arthritis – a common condition causing pain and inflammation in the joints – then you might be interested to hear that a simple diet switch-up could help ease your symptoms…That’s according to one health expert, who claims that eating one particular type of fruit may have offer an anti-inflammatory effect.Speaking to the Express, Dr Sneh Khemka, Aetna International Director of Population Health, claimed that eating cherries could be helpful as part of a balanced diet.‘Certain foods have been shown to fight inflammation, strengthen bones and improve the immune system,’ he said.‘Adding these foods to your balanced diet, may help ease the symptoms of arthritis. Cherries have an anti-inflammatory effect and form part of your five-a-day.‘If you don’t like cherries you can try other berries,’ he added. ‘Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries have the same effect.’Dr Khemka added that consuming more Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in the likes of oily fish, could also prove helpful if you are suffering from painful joints.This isn’t the first time experts have advised that oily fish can be helpful to those suffering from arthritis. Research published last summer by US scientists showed that eating more fish helped reduce inflammation and ease symptoms in arthritic patients.Sourcelast_img read more
