which can magnify x1000 Step 3: Louis Pasteurs germ theory Old Theory: spontaneous generation micro-organisms are the result of decaying matter.

New Theory: germ theory micro-organisms cause decaying matter. Pasteur showed you could kill the microorganisms by applying heat PASTEURISATION. Step 4: Germ theory vs spontaneous generation Pasteur now had to prove his theory. In competition with

French scientist Pouchet. Conducted an experiment showing that microbes in the air caused decay. 1861 published his germ theory Step 5: Linking micro-organisms to disease

Pasteur showed micro-organisms made wine and beer go bad. Could germs cause disease? Another experiment! Proved that a micro-organism was causing disease in silk worms. Step 6: Proving the link between bacteria and human disease.
