What would the human race be like if we did not have some of todays modern medicines It would probably be just like it was 200 years ago Doctors claiming to know cures forsome of the worlds most infectious diseases and then treating them in the some of themost inhuman ways People would be dieing from infections left and right And even worse we would not know how to cure most of their diseases The world populationwould probably be half the size that it is today But thanks to the Golden Age ofMicrobiology and the people who tried to find cures and such we now have ways to over come most of the worlds diseases The Golden Age was only 20 years long from 1880 to about 1900 It was the time when about three scientists helped to better sciences technologies and cures The first of these three was Pasteur Some of his contributions to science were the creation of silk and a cure for rabies But one of the most important of all of his findings was the idea of pasteurization Around the time of 1870 there was a problem with the making of beer and wine The companies could not figure out a way to keep their products from becoming sour Pasteur then came up with the idea of adding many different elements to the products and then refrigerating them for a long period of time Thus came the idea of pasteurization The second out of the three was Robert Koch Koch was mostly into the study of microbiology and bacteriology Most of his researching was done under the microscope but he realized that he could not totally determine what a certain bacteria classified as He discovered that if you were to add a stain to slide that you would be able to make out the bacteria about 10x better Koch also noticed that sometimes you cant always find bacteria in just one
