If you've seen the Hitchcock classic Vertigo, then you know what it means to have that type of dizziness. But many people don't understand what it feels like, and how serious it can be. And since so many new patients have come in to the office lately with vertigo, I have done a lot of reading on the subject and thought I should share the information with the public. Some of the reading was a bit dry and boring and too scientific, so I have attempted to relate only the interesting facts.

The afternoon lines often extends out onto the sidewalks of the 300 block of East Yosemite Avenue as walk-up customers in the heart of Manteca's commercial center have taken to the unique American-based menu that offers everything from sandwiches and salads.
I've just finished reviewing "Hungry Oceans: What Happens When the Prey Is Gone?" that is an in-depth look at what is happening to fisheries around the world. The report was compiled by Oceana, an international organization that is dedicated to protecting and restoring the world's oceans. The conclusion of the report states that the disappearance of small fish normally eaten by big fish is causing a collapse in fish numbers.

Growing up "fat" is easy to do when 20 percent of all children eat more than three times a week at a fast-food establishment, 13 percent of their average daily calories come from soft drinks, and the average person consumes approximately 140 pounds of sugar every year. According to the latest estimates, 9 million children in the United States are obese, and this disturbing trend is repeating itself in other countries that embrace a Western diet and sedentary lifestyle.

Sweet Sweets! I had passed by the quaint little bakery on Louise Avenue (near Hollywood Video) dozens of times but had never had the pleasure of stepping inside. That is until one cold morning while waiting for my car to get a smog check nearby. I had a hankering for a hot cup of coffee and a pastry and with time to spare I thought I would pay "Sweet Sweets" a visit.
