Germ Theory Quotes

Many people mistakenly believe that germs cause colds and other infectious illnesses. The state of our immune system, however, is what really determines whether or not we get sick. The specific bacteria or virus is not nearly as important as the medium in which it is allowed to flourish.

Bach was making an important point here in our understanding of the nature of disease, with its one-sided emphasis on “germs” or pathogens (microbes such as bacteria and viruses). This discussion echoes the nineteenth century dispute between Louis Pasteur (1822-1895), who argued that germs (pathogens) cause disease in otherwise healthy individuals, and his contemporaries Antoine Béchamp (1816-1908) and Claude Bernard (1813-1878) who contended that disease pathogens are opportunistic and thrive in an unhealthy organism, where they find suitable “terrain” or milieu intérieur (interior environment).
Organic gardeners know that it is the health of the soil (the terrain) that determines the health of the plants and their susceptibility to disease and pests. Similarly, maintaining a healthy inner “terrain” is the key to human health.
