Cold and flu season is here. H1N1 is a primary topic of conversation. Are you taking the right precautions? We’ll revisit our conversation with the late Dr. Michael Hudson, one of the world’s experts on why increasing numbers of microbes are becoming resistant to antibiotics. Hear why he said you should throw out all of your antibacterial soaps and cleaners. What he had to say may keep you well. Join us for an encore presentation of Charlotte Talks.

  1. I’ve been reading and hearing about this for a few years and I wonder WHY CHARLOTTE MECKLENBURG SCHOOLS promote these antibacterials and require them in the classrooms. My children want to use them all the time…

  2. The “late” Dr. Hudson? I remember when that show originally aired. It was quite interesting and informational. What happened to Dr. Hudson?

  3. Great show–please consider running it again sometime for those of us who did not hear all of it. Really like Charlotte Talks for timely and interesting topics.

  4. Memorial for Dr. Michael Hudson

    The faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Biology continue to mourn the loss of

    Dr. Michael Hudson, a distinguished scientist, an award-winning teacher, a dedicated Chair,

    and a valued colleague. A memorial will be held November 18th, 2009, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

    in the third-floor SAC salons on campus. All those who wish to attend are welcome.

  5. Kathleen,

    Dr. Hudson died unexpectedly this past May. The University, particularly the Biology Department, continue to grieve his loss. He was one of UNC Charlotte’s most beloved professors and was a renowned scientist.

    We’re glad that Charlotte Talks re-broadcast this show. He was a frequent guest.

  6. Thank you for this informative and profound discussion. I hope more people will research ingesting beneficial bacteria, such as whole food probiotics.

    Yogurts, kefirs, fermented vegetables, miso, raw cheese, kombucha have many beneficial microorganisms to help rebalance the gut microflora— our immune system!

  7. Incredible interesting, thank you Dr. Hudson for looking over us.

    Where can you buy non anti-baterial liquid soap – Ivory
