Health Capsules was originally created in 1962, and written by a doctor. I read it faithfully as a teenager in my hometown newspaper in Sequim, Washington. Little did I know at the time that I would one day be selected by United Features Syndicate to take over the feature when the cartoonist retired at the age of 92.

I write and draw the feature, which appears daily in newspapers at home and abroad. I had no idea that my years of nutritional studies would pay off in such a way.

It’s exciting to get e-mails from all over the world now... Paraguay, Mexico, Somalia, as well as the United States and Canada. I got one yesterday from a student in Bangladesh who mentioned that he reads Health Capsules everyday in The Times of India. I would never imagined this scenario as a kid.

If you work at a newspaper somewhere on the planet, we would love to add your newspaper to our growing list. It is translated into the local language in other countries. Let me know it you have any questions.
