Louis Pasteur sent out a pamphlet informing doctors to wash their hands, he believed it would prevent childbed fever. A man whos wife died of childbed fever saw the pamphlet and decided that the doctor that delivered his child, killed his wife by not washing his hands, therefore the doctor needed to die.
Louis Pasteur tried to prove that microbes existed. He went to Napoleon III to show him that germs existed, but Napoleon instead told im he must leave Paris and never speak of his research again. Pasteur left but did not stop his research.
Finally I'll prove you wrong!
In a small village Loius Pasteur discovered a way to keep sheep from getting anthrax. He began giving them vaccines that prevented them from getting sick. Anthrax was killing a lot of sheep and goats until Pasteur found the vaccine.
You will be okay.
My son can't die!!
A doctor believed that Pasteur was wrong about the vaccines. Pasteur to prove a point vaccinated 25 sheep and left the other 25 without vaccination. Pasteur was right his vaccines did work the sheeps that were not vaccinate died. This proved Pasteur knew what he was doing.
Mr.Charbonet, a doctor, who continuosly tried to disproved Pasteur injected himself with rabies, to show that he would be fine. Pasteur figured out that because the virus was nine days old it became weak, giving him an idea on how to cure rabies. Charbonet however wanted Pastuer to stop his work because it made physicians look bad.
A young boy arrived at the Pasteur residence. He had been bitten by a dog that had rabies and the boy was bound to die. Until Pasteur tried a very risky experiment that saved the life of this boy. He injected a weaker strain and built up the boys tolerance to the rabis virus.
