Louis Pasteur built his reputation and altered the course of twentieth century science by plagiarizing and distorting the work Antoine Bechamp. Pearson exposes. Antoine Bechamp, the babe of , died on the 15th April, , fourteen days after he was first visited by an aged American physician between whom and. The French chemist Antoine Béchamp (–) was a life-long rival to the Béchamp was comprehensively wrong, but not absolutely so.

Pasteur, apparently, had not finally given up his “spontaneous generation” ideas until orand since then, had ascribed all signs of fermentation, and all disease, to airborne germs, yet here he denies that this disease is parasitic!

As occurred with ‘flu’ in the war, which was merely a mutation of the typhoid germ in the vaccines used against typhoid and paratyphoid, every vaccine may produce a ‘new’ form of germ which, as noted above, may “make the occurrence of the disease much more marked than previously”. There are no real grounds for supposing that madness, as found in humans, occurs in dogs, nor can it be proved that the bite from a distracted animal can produce madness in anyone bitten.

Both private instructor E.

Competent authorities claim that in so-called ‘real’ rabies, a dog never foams at the mouth, but has a small amount of brownish stringy discharge hanging from the lips, and the eyes have a fiery glare.

The following is the entire text of the book. Pasteur had treated M.

Pasteur Versus Béchamp: The History of Germ Theory

Dumas went further and asserted that the ferments, the yeast, behaved as do animals who feed, and that, for the orderly maintenance of the life of the yeast, there was needed, as for animals, besides sugar, nitrogenized albuminoid matter.

She said of ‘infection’: It was the experiment of starving the yeast which enabled me to complete the demonstration that the phenomenon called the fermentation of cane sugar by yeast was the digestion of the sugar by the zymas, the absorption of the digested invert sugar by the cellule, the decomposition of this sugar in the cellule being the result of the complex phenomenon of assimilationfollowed necessarily by disassimilation and of elimination; the products eliminated being carbonic acid, alcohol, acetic acid, etc.


It seems to me that this chart alone is very conclusive evidence that the statements we have quoted in this chapter, as to biologicals causing both tuberculosis and heart disease, are correct.

Garth Wilkinson, in proceeding along the alimentary canal it encounters along its whole line a series of chemical laboratories, wherein it is analysed, synthesized, and deleterious matter prepared for excretion, and finally excreted, or it may be ejected from the stomach, or overcome by an antidote. One, that of Roux, more or less agreeing with or imitated from an earlier one of Pasteur, is the following: They state that rabies is a very rare disease except where dogs have been injected with rabies serum, in which case it very often develops.

In process of time, the similarity of their composition and of certain of their common properties with the albumin of the white of egg led to these matters being formed into the groups of the albuminoid matters. Nothing is better fitted to convince one that the human soul during the second half of the 19th century has remained the same as it was in the times of Galileo and of the inquisition, than to reflect upon the sequel of the history I have just sketched out.

The relevance of his work to the dilemmas that beset modern medical science remains as yet unrealised. A sheep having died of anthrax, after the learned professors had vaccinated some other sheep with Pasteur’s cultures, they inoculated both these vaccinated sheep and some unvaccinated antoins with the blood of the dead sheep.

I have seen diseases begin, grow up, and pass into one another. But the microzymian theory, which is to biology what the Lavoisierian theory of matter is to chemistry, and is founded on the discovery of antoune microzymas, living organisms of an unsuspected category, has been attacked in its principle, by denying the very existence of the microzymas.

To demonstrate this, he reduced the experiment to the employment of sugar, which he called a vegetable oxide, of water and of a ferment. The historian of antiine founders of modern astronomy lately related that Cleanthus, a philosopher, three centuries before our era, wished to prosecute Aristarchus for blasphemy, for having believed that the earth moved, and dared to say the sun was the immovable center of the universe; that two thousand years later, human reason having remained stationary, the wish of Cleanthus was realized; Galileo having been accused of blasphemy and impiety for having, like Copernicus and following Aristarchus, maintained the same truth; “a tribunal dreaded by all, condemned his writings and forced him to a recantation which his conscience denied.


Nothing then remained to explain the birth of the organized productions than the old hypothesis of germs; pretended germs, which allowed me no rest until I had discovered their origin and nature. However, as soon as a new organism is introduced into the herd, the occurrence of the disease is much more marked than before.

At last, which surprised me most of all, shortly after the coagulation was completed, there was a crowd of bacteria in every part of the clot. This was intended bechsmp be introduced as a special chapter in an extensive work on inoculations and their relations to pathology, upon which the translator of this work had been engaged, almost exclusively, for some fourteen years.

The remark which made him attempt it was as follows:. In this respect, it closely resembles the macrocytase of macrophagic organs which also dissolves red corpuscles. Pasteur gave his results as being “of the most rigorous exactness.

Antoine Béchamp

Thus from the study of a simple chemical fact, I was led to investigate the causes of fermentation, and the nature and origin of ferments. It was found that some of the product of the establishment had been used on 11 herds of hogs. Not unnaturally, Lister used doses of carbolic acid, which, when placed upon an open wound or respired by a patient were lethal.

If the figures offarms affected averaged the same, it would run to nearly 23, animals, close to half the number of animals in Germany! At the time of writing, he has spent three years in prison without being charged with any offence, his medications for Parkinson’s disease have been tampered with, and clinics using polyatomic apheresis have been raided and closed. In short, it was spontaneous fermentation of materials in presence of one another.
