Louis Pasteur discovered many discoveries that advanced bacteriology. He made
pasteurization and vaccinations. Pasteurization was made when Emperor Napoleon asked
Louis Pasteur to examine diseases in wine. Pasteur showed that by heating wine at a
certain temperature, the bacteria in the wine would die. Pasteurization was formed. The
process was used to kill other bacteria in other liquids, like in milk and beer. He
discovered vaccinations when he researched the rabies. He could not see the things that
caused the rabies but he knew that that there was a virus. He made vaccinations that made
dogs immune to rabies and were able to treat people with rabies.
Next Pasteur discovered how to sterilize products. While he was looking at silkworm
diseases, he discovered how to prevent the factories' worms to stop making silk because
of diseases. He watched normal silk worms then he watched sick worms. He found the
two diseases, Pebrine and Flacherie. Then he, discovered by isolating the worms that
weren't sick, the diseases wound not spread to the other worms. He saved the silk
How has influenced us today?
Louis Pasteur influences us by his many discoveries. His discoveries led to other
discoveries. His influence in medicine helped save many lives. Public places, like
hospitals have more hygiene. He also discovered anaerobic diseases. His discoveries in
vaccination led to vaccinations of much more diseases. He discovered many methods of
sterilization. He also built an institute for disease. Diseases are researched, taught and
treated in the institution.
