germ-theory

anonymous asked:

<<Claudia died at ...36...far too young to die a natural death>> Well - accidents aside - London, 1866; childbirth, typhoid, typhus, pertussis, measles, smallpox, cholera, wound infection, tuberculosis (probably what's going on with Bluer), no germ theory of medicine, only beginning to understand keeping sewage out of the water supply. Plus the usual colds, flu and poor medical care. Natural deaths were early and often.

Okay, well maybe I shouldn’t have used the term ‘natural death’. What I meant was that I doubt Claudia died because of her age alone. A sickness is a likely possibility especially during that time. And yeah, because of all that the life expectancy wasn’t that high, especially in a city like London.

We don’t know much about Claudia but from the Phantomhive women we do know (Frances, Lizzy) it seems like the Phantomhive line has some really strong women – physically and emotionally. So I kinda doubt that Claudia died because of a sickness. Of course, that’s just my take on it and I could be wrong. But I believe that the early deaths of the Watchdogs isn’t a coincidence and that the same people who killed Ciel’s parents could have already been behind Claudia’s death. Or at least the reason why they died could have been the same.

Representations of, what I think are, the greatest scientific theories of all time.

5) Electromagnetism: the first image shows an electromagnetic wave, with Maxwell’s equation below it. James Maxwell receives most of the credit for the unification of electricity and magnetism, but he relied on the work done by Gauss, Faraday and Ampere.

4) The Pathogenic Theory of Medicine: the image shows pathogens (bacteria) during their reproduction, and the general molecular structure of penicillin; since antibiotics are arguably the most influential consequence of Germ Theory. The theory developed gradually due to the work of many historical physicians. And primarily by the first Microbiologist Anton van Leeuwenhoek, and also Robert Koch who designed the first clear criteria to establish a causal relationship between a microbe and a disease. Alexander Fleming is credited, as well, for discovering Penicillin.

3) The Theory of Relativity: there’s a two-dimensional illustration of a curved three dimensional space-time, due to the presence of mass. The assumption that space-time can be curved comes from General relativity, and is deduced from the equivalence principle. The image also shows a light cone, representing the limit of causality between events, as a consequence of the speed of light limit. Also, I added the main relationship between Energy and Momentum in relativistic mechanics (the relationship from which E=mc^2 can be derived). Albert Einstein receives most of the credit for Relativity theory, though his theory is based on other physicists’ work, most notably Lorentz transformation.

2) The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection: the image shows a drawing of four evolving organisms, which resembles the evolution of amphibians from lobe-finned fish. (I actually evolved the organisms by taking the previous one and changing it slightly while drawing them :D).The image also shows a Phylogenetic tree of a species splitting into two (cladogenisis), and evolving in different branches afterwards. Natural selection was proposed by Charles Darwin. Alfred Russel Wallace is sometimes credited for independently developing a similar theory.

1) Quantum Mechanics: the image represents quantum theory by showing the mathematical formula for Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, Schrodinger’s equation, and also a Feynman diagram of beta(-) decay. Quantum theory is arguably the greatest scientific achievement of man-kind. The credit goes to many physicists for founding and improving Quantum Mechanics, most importantly: Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Luise De Broglie, Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrodinger, Max Born, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac and Richard Feynman.

The ancient Romans were obsessed with both water and cleanliness. They “brought aqueducts, heated public baths, flushing toilets, sewers and piped water. They even had multiseat public bathrooms decked out with contour toilet seats, a sea sponge version of toilet paper and hand-washing stations.” You might think that this would have helped overall health in this ancient civilization– but not so!

“With all their body oils and bath rituals, [Piers Mitchell, a paleopathologist at the University of Cambridge] says, “they would have smelled clean, but they would have had infectious disease nonetheless.”

Mitchell focused his research on many reports that have tested for disease-causing microbes at Roman sites–– in mummies, fossilized feces, latrines, etc.

“’I thought we’d see a drop in the intestinal parasites that are spread by feces and poor sanitation compared with the Iron Age, when there weren’t any toilets. But, in fact, I didn’t see a drop at all,’ says Mitchell.”

The types of microbes and parasites that frequently cropped up in his research include: whipworm, roundworm, fleas, bedbugs, three varieties of lice, hookworm, pinworm, and and a single-celled parasite that causes dysentery. “Mitchell also posits that the Romans may have spread a humongous tapeworm from northern Europe as they carted their favorite condiment, fermented fish sauce, around the empire.”

Be sure to read more of this NPR story, “Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend Us Your Toilets (Without Parasites)” to find out the current hypotheses behind these prevalent Roman microbes.

Happy Birthday to Joseph Lister!

Born on April 5, 1827, Lister made the connection between the concept of germs that Pasteur observed ruining fermentation with the infections that patients often acquired after surgery. At the time the survival rate after surgery was only about 50%. Lister realized he may have some control since the cause of the infection was environmental and not inborn. He used carbolic acid as an antiseptic and had the surgical tools, patient’s wounds, and surgeon’s hands cleaned with the acid which greatly reduced the rate of death and amputation.

The portrait of Joseph Lister is from The Collected Papers of Joseph Baron Lister, 1909.

The image of ‘germs’ is from Manual of Clinical Microscopy and Chemistry, 1904.

Mercury kills everything it comes into contact with, which is why mercury is used as an antibacterial preservative and it is used as a disinfectant in bandaids and gauze (mercuric chloride)*.  Ever wonder why cuts and scrapes heal quicker when you don’t cover them up?   

Why are we poisoning ourselves while thinking we are helping ourselves with preservatives and disinfectants?  Could it be because we have been massively psy-oped for many generations into believing that germs cause disease? 

Maybe it’s time to look at its opposing theory which proposes it’s the environment which determines what disease and germs you will get.  In other words,  it’s the poison that dictates the disease and the morphing inside our cells to form microbial forms that act as garbage processors as needed , not the other way around.   

This is the reason I keep repeating disinfo kills more massively than nuclear weapons. Get on the correct side of the germ theory scam (pushed by the Vatican), and you will never be scammed by the Medical Cartel again.

Currently Reading: Susan Sontag - Illness as Metaphor

I picked up this slim (90 pages and pocket-sized) essay from a used bookstore this weekend, and it is absolutely fascinating. I’ve only just started it, but so far the rough shape it takes is a comparison between metaphorical perceptions about tuberculosis in the 19th century and perceptions of cancer in contemporary society. We can still see the TB trope in adaptations of 19th century works–the sensitive artist who coughs weakly and surreptitiously into a handkerchief on which we catch a glimpse of a smattering of blood. Even as germ theory became a mainstream belief, the idea of “disease” being linked to the psyche and the character still hadn’t completely shaken loose. Sontag contrasts this perception with the modern perception of cancer, which is often seen in a more negative light.

What I can’t help thinking about is that Sontag wrote it in 1978–just 10 years later it would become more relevant than she could have imagined as the AIDS crisis exploded. The 20th century quickly proved it was no better than the 19th–AIDS is still seen as a disease that is solely the domain of gay men and drug abusers, and mainstream reactions to Charlie Sheen’s admission of his HIV positive status are a testament to that. If you’re looking for a fast but revelatory read that links the past painfully to the present, this is a text for you.

Deprogramming the Medical Fraud Matrix Part II
All roads lead to Rome.  To be more specific: The Vatican.

This interview, exposes the flawed foundational matrix that the current conventional medical system in the western world is based upon, the germ theory.  Pasteur and the Vatican are at the center of it.  If you don’t have a good understanding of the history and the horrendous ramifications of this insidious theory, you will NEVER break free from the drugs and surgery mindframe that is so rampant in this sick world.    This psy-op is the reason why people use incredibly toxic disinfectants to kill germs, justify using chemical warfare poisons as chemotherapy for the already extremely toxic cancer patients, Lysol-ing everything and everywhere, Chlorox-ing this and that.   The  "as-long-as-germs-are dead, we-win" mentality is killing humanity, plants, animals, insects, microbial life.  Basically all life in general on this planet is getting obliterated due to this false indoctrination. 

Doing last-minute final prep for Medical Society this morning and found out that Ignaz Semmelweiss was committed to an insane asylum, probably for Alzheimer’s Disease, where he was beaten repeatedly to death.

Ignaz Semmelweiss is, in my opinion, one of the most influential doctors in history and I always thought it was sad he didn’t get any credit when he was alive. Without him, who knows when doctors would have grasped the concept of washing their hands repeatedly?

Finding out that was so much more depressing though.

Germ theory

by Walene James

GERM THEORY (PASTEUR) (first line)

CELLULAR THEORY (BECHAMP). (Second line)

1. Disease arises from micro-organisms outside the body.
Disease arises from micro-organisms within the cells of the body.
2. Micro-organisms are generally to be guarded against.
These intracellular micro-organisms normally function to build and assist in the metabolic processes of the body.
3. The function of micro-organisms is constant.
The function of these organisms changes to assist in the catabolic (disintegration) processes of the host organism when that organism dies or is injured, which may be chemical as well as mechanical.
4. The shapes and colours of micro-organisms are constant
Micro-organisms change their shapes and colours to reflect the medium
5. Every disease is associated with a particular micro-organism
Every disease is associated with a particular condition.
6. Micro-organisms are primary causal agents.
Micro-organisms become “pathogenic” as the health of the host organism deteriorates. Hence, the condition of the host organism is the primary causal agent.
7. Disease can “strike” anybody.
Disease is built by unhealthy conditions.
8. To prevent disease we have to “build defences”.
To prevent disease we have to create health.

I find this interesting because even though allopathic medicine is built on the germ theory, it is most recently been said by some that children are born with disease and potential to spread to others. I personally find that bizarre but still it does against germ theory. If my child is healthy I don’t believe they can spread harmful germs but this seems to be the new argument, possibly by confused people. It can be a confusing issue, first do no harm and learn as much as you can. Stop the blame.

In 1882, Robert Koch discovered that a bacterium was behind the world’s leading cause of death: tuberculosis (TB). This brilliant combination of investigative logic and savvy microscopy refuted the conventional wisdom that TB was an inherited disease, or some form of cancer. Rather, TB was caused by a particularly wily and insatiable germ. This finding didn’t just accurately identify the agent behind the world’s leading cause of death. It also established an essential new paradigm for medicine. There are those diseases that are caused by bacteria (and later, viruses), such as tuberculosis, typhoid and typhus fevers, and diphtheria; and those diseases caused by the body’s own failures, such as heart disease and cancer. For more than a century, this distinction has served as a sharp and clear line in our understanding of disease. But it is a distinction that may be on the verge of being itself replaced. Germs, it seems, may be at the root of more disease than we have given them credit for. (via Germs Rule the World - Thomas Goetz - The Atlantic)

  • In the last decade, several diseases understood as strictly noninfectious have, in fact, been found to have significant infectious components. Several forms of cancer, gastrointenstinal diseases, autoimmune illnesses including diabetes, and even some categories of heart disease are all being reconsidered in light of new research. Together, this research amounts to nothing less than a new germ theory, one that could once again alter contemporary definitions of medicine.
  • Heart disease, of course, has long been considered an ailment of exclusively human causes, rising in the developed world as traditional infectious disease has waned. Heart disease kills more people than any other condition worldwide, including 47 percent of Americans and Europeans and 30 percent of all global deaths. Scientific consensus points to some combination of behavioral and environmental links (smoking, diet, exercise, stress, and so on down the list), along with various genetic components. Except in rare cases of acute infections, such as infectious endocarditis, microbes have been considered irrelevant. But in 2013, an infectious component revealed itself, in the form of trimethylamine-N-oxide, or TMAO. TMAO isn’t a bacterium itself; rather it’s created when bacteria digest carnitine, a compound found in meat, and lecithin, a fatty substance common in certain foods such as eggs, milk, and some nuts. In research published in Nature Medicine and The New England Journal of Medicine, a team led by Cleveland Clinic’s Stanley Hazen found that human subjects with the highest levels of TMAO in their blood had about twice the risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or death compared to those who had the lowest TMAO levels.
  • A similar blurring of the lines has happened in research into gastrointestinal and autoimmune diseases, driven by the growing awareness of a microbiome—those one trillion bacteria that live in our guts and on our skins, a trillion organisms that unwittingly affect the larger organism that is the human body. A studyreleased last November suggested a strong connection between a bacteria namedPrevotella copri and rheumatoid arthritis. Not only did researchers establish a significantly higher rate of the bacteria in humans with the disease, but when they administered doses of P. copri to mice the animals developed increased inflammation. The first hint that these microbes might play a role occurred in 1982, when Australian scientists Barry Marshall and Robin Warren discovered helicobacter, a microbe that was persistently present in patients with chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers.

Dr. Jay’s Note:  This is one of my favorite lifestyle metaphors.

- Clean Garbage Cans Don’t Attract Flies -

Ever notice that flies like to congregate around dirty, neglected garbage cans? You don’t usually see them swarming near clean ones. The same can be said for germs, bugs and viruses.

Germs are like flies…they’re opportunistic. Give them a dirty place to settle and they’ll multiply. Provide a weak host and they’ll take advantage. But that’s not the case in clean, well kept environments. BJ Palmer, the developer of Chiropractic said ‘if the germ theory was true, we would all be dead.’ He recognized that germs thrive in dis-eased (Subluxated) individuals who can’t fight back, not healthy strong ones.

If you keep your body tidy with proper hygiene, good nutrition and most important - a clear Nerve System, germs and bugs are less capable of taking up residence in you. And if they make the mistake of trying too, you’re healthy well-adjusted body will give them the boot!
