      The germ theory of disease is the currently accepted scientific theory of disease. Germ theory states that certain diseases are caused by the invasion of the body by microorganisms, organisms too small to be seen except through a microscope.

    From measles to HIV, swine flu to SARS, hepatitis and now, to COVID, the myth about “germ theory” has been perpetuated through the power of financial wealth by the institutions that control the mainstream medical establishment which is now, unbelievably, is making the decisions regarding human affairs almost on the entire world, wreaking havoc to people’s lives and the economy while. History Of The Germ Theory. One of the first things we hear about health is that microorganisms cause diseases. The word pathogen refers to a disease-causing microorganism. Another name for it is germs. The germ theory suggests that all germs are behind most of our ailments. Many people hail Louis Pasteur as the father of the germ theory.

    Dean Rickles, in Philosophy of Medicine, The Germ Theory of Disease. The bacteriological theory of disease, of Pasteur, Koch and oth identified the precise biological organisms responsible for the transmission of infectious diseases. Germ theory reduced the spread of disease to the transmission of these bacteria. 18 Hence, the causes of diseases were conceptualized as local. Germ theory, in medicine, the theory that certain diseases are caused by the invasion of the body by microorganisms, organisms too small to be seen except through a French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur, the English surgeon Joseph Lister, and the German physician Robert Koch are given much of the credit for development and acceptance of the theory.

London, Baillière, Tindall. The germ theory of disease is the currently accepted scientific theory for many diseases. It states that microorganisms known as pathogens or "germs" can lead to disease. These small organisms, too small to see without magnification, invade humans, other animals, and other living hosts.

Their growth and reproduction within their hosts can cause disease. "Germ" may refer to. a rather small step from the accumulated evidence about plant and animal parasites during the s to the establishment of germ theory in the s–s.

The history of parasitology in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries suggests ways in which models drawn from the study of parasitic organisms might have influenced debates over the etiology of infectious diseases and led to a unified theory if parasitology had not been segregated intellectually.

Intellectual and institutional history thus determined that the study of parasites would offer little to the modern germ theory of disease by making its models unavailable to physicians. CONTAGIOUS DISEASES and the GERM THEORY By Dr. Bernarr, D.C., D.D. T.C. Fry wrote, "Actually bacteria are our symbiotic partners in both health and disease.

They serve a useful role. As scavengers they make harmless or remove undesirable substances within our bodies. They also elaborate certain of. The advent of the germ theory of disease, anticipated by Ignaz Semmelweis (–65) and consolidated by Louis Pasteur (–95), strongly influenced medical opinion toward an antibacterial stance.
