He developed vaccines for rabies and anthrax, revolutionized medicine with his germ theory of disease, and laid the foundation for the control of tuberculosis, cholera, diphtheria and tetanus.
While Dean of the Faculty of Sciences at Lille University in France, he developed the process of "Pasteurization" of milk.
This was Louis Pasteur, who died SEPTEMBER 28, 1895.
President Eisenhower wrote January 8, 1954:
"Pasteurization of milk has prevented countless epidemics and saved thousands of lives."
President Johnson stated April 7, 1966:
"Years ago Louis Pasteur said, 'I hold the unconquerable belief that science and peace will triumph over ignorance and war; that nations will come together not to destroy, but to construct; and that the future belongs to those who accomplish most for humanity.'"
President George H.W. Bush stated February 13, 1989:
"You know, Louis Pasteur once said: 'Chance favors only the prepared mind.'...For America to be prepared for the future, our children must be educated."
Dr. Louis Pasteur wrote:
"The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator...
There is something in the depths of our souls which tells us that the world may be more than a mere combination of events."
We can thank the creative abilities of this man for the health of people worldwide. I saw an old black and white movie about his life. It was amazing. The strength, the drive and the determination to find answers is a huge trait we "must" instill in our own children. Without that dedication to excellence our society will not survive.
God loves you,
