Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria With cold and flu season approaching, we'll talk germs and bacteria. The excessive use of antibiotics (from the doctor and the foods we eat) is helping to create dangerous "superbugs." We'll find out ways to stay safe and healthy and we'll also find out why our guest biologist says you should throw away all of your anti-bacterial soaps and cleaners. Guest Dr. Michael Hudson - Chair of the Biology Department, UNC Charlotte Since this is an encore presentation, we won't be able to take your phone calls.
