“If I could live my life over again, I would devote
it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat,
diseased tissue – rather than being the cause of
the diseased tissue.”
– Rudolph Virchow
“Nothing is lost, nothing is created … all is
transformed. Nothing is the prey of death.
All is the prey of life.”
– Antoine Béchamp
“The specific disease doctrine is the grand refuge of
weak, uncultured, unstable minds, such as now rule
in the medical profession. There are no specific
diseases; there are specific disease conditions.”
– Florence Nightingale
The writer has made an effort in his prior books and pamphlets to
show that the germ theory is false, and that illness is practically always
due to errors of diet or manner of living, the germs being present solely
as scavengers of dead and waste tissues and foods, and not as the cause
of the disease.
However, the erroneous belief that germs cause disease and must
be controlled or eliminated before it can be cured is so widespread as
to close the minds of many people to any other ideas on this subject.
R.B. Pearson 1942 – Pasteur: Plagiarist, Imposter – The Germ Theory Exploded
Many years ago the famous English physician Alexander Haig provedBechamp or Pasteur
in Uric Acid in the Causation of Disease that the breakdown of human
cell tissues was due primarily to uric acid formed in the breakdown of
protein, and that all animal flesh contained some uric acid when eaten,
hence was much more potent in starting this break-down than plant
foods, which were all free of uric acid when fresh. He contended that
germs were merely of secondary importance, and never the cause of
the various conditions of ill-health with which they were frequently found.
Surprising confirmation of his ideas seems to come from someBechamp or Pasteur
experiments conducted by F. Pottenger and D. Simonsen on cats.1
They put two groups of cats on diets of meat and vegetables, identical
except that in one group the meat was given raw, and this group seemed
to maintain normal good health throughout the experiments. In the
other group the meat was all cooked, and this group showed an
astonishing breakdown of health in all the animals.
He also assisted his father in his researches on corpses, where theBechamp or Pasteur pg. 240
two Béchamps maintained that the inherent microzymas, apart from
the assistance of foreign ‘germs’, bring about decomposition. They
taught that when the corporate life of a being is at an end, the
infinitesimal organisms that originally built up its cells continue to
flourish, and by their life processes destroy the habitat of which they
were the creators.
“It represents the blood to be in reality a flowing tissue, not a liquid. The corpuscles, red and colourless, do not float in a liquid, as is commonly thought, and as our senses indicate, but are mingled with an enormous mass of invisible microzymas – the mixture behaving precisely as a fluid will do under normal conditions. They are each clad in an albuminous envelope, and nearly fill the blood vessels, but not quite. Between them is a very small quantity of intracellular fluid. These microzymas, in their albuminous shells, constitute the ‘molecular microzymian granulations’
– the third anatomical element – of the blood.
As soon as the natural conditions of life cease, and the blood is withdrawn by an incision in the vessels, these molecular granulations begin to adhere to each other very rigidly. By this adhesion, the clot is formed, and the process of coagulation is so rapid that the corpuscles are caught within its meshes before they have time to sink to the bottom, as by their weight they would otherwise do.
Then we have a second stage. The albuminous envelope of the granulation becomes condensed and shrinks. So the clot sinks en masse, and expels the intracellular liquor. Finally, in the third stage, the corpuscles are crushed by the contracting clot, and the red yield their colouring to the serum without. There is no such thing as fibrin per se; fibrin is not a proximate principle, but a false membrane of microzymas.
There is much in this ingenious explanation of a difficult and hitherto by no means satisfactorily solved problem which seems to indicate, at any rate to the present writer, that it is worthy of far closer examination and consideration than it has received…”Bechamp or Pasteur pg. 241
