Health Capsules is a unique Q&A panel that combines useful information with cartoon illustrations to answer readers' questions about general health topics. Created in 1961 by Dr. Michael Petti, M.D., and illustrator Jud Hurd, Health Capsules was begun as an effort to educate people about common health myths. The feature covers everything from long-established medical facts to the most recent discoveries in medical research.
Bron Smith, who has created Health Capsules since 2002, has been writing personal dietary and health recommendations for about 15 years. Smith, his wife and their two sons live in Puyallup, Washington.
