What in the world happened to medical radio guru Prof. Harry Seftel?

Prof. Harry Seftel knew almost everything medical related, and always warned people about the dangers of smoking.

Stefel used his medical knowledge to demystify and explain complicated health subjects for 702 and CapeTalk listeners. He also worked at 3Talk with Noeleen Maholwana- Sangqu.

He always left listeners and viewers with simple memorable messages. Many remember him on the radio for his message of all times, 'I tell people not to smoke grass, but must eat grass'.

His son, Mark Seftel, says he is still strong.

What I really take away from his work is to take something as complex as health and medicine accessible to everyday people. That's something he has done and continues to do in the community he lives in.
