This volume contains new editions of two books that have been available only sporadically in the decades since their publication. R. Pearson’s Pasteur: Plagiarist, Imposter was originally published in 1942, and is a succinct introduction to both Louis Pasteur and Antoine Béchamp, and the reasons behind the troubled relationship that they shared for their entire working lives.
Whereas Pearson’s work is a valuable introduction to an often complex topic, it is Ethel Douglas Hume’s expansive and well-documented Béchamp or Pasteur? A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology provides the main body of evidence. It covers the main points of contention between Béchamp and Pasteur in-depth sufficient to satisfy any degree of scientific or historical scrutiny, and it contains detailed references to the source material and supporting evidence.
“Nothing is lost, nothing is created … all is transformed.
Nothing is the prey of death.
All is the prey of life.”
– Antoine Béchamp
“It’s strange to realize that the two parts in this book actually were printed way back, respectively in 1923 and 1942, so why has the truth about Pasteur and the vaccination been buried for so long?”
“Modern medicine needs to return to this bifurcation point and take the pleomorphic path. When this phenomenon is truly understood drug poisons will disappear as do all things which outlive their usefulness. This book is required reading for anyone choosing to understand how the body heals.”
“A very interesting look at two rivals in science. Pasteur, who touts the germ theory of medicine, and Bechamp, who had a broader theory of health and medicine much akin to the current Microbiome theory of medicine.”
“A must-read to anyone really interested to understand why our modern “medicine” is so so so wrong as it goes deep into the root of a belief and philosophy of Pasteur fraud. Very interesting and documented.”
