Louis Pasteur; The Hero Of Cows

Hello everyone! Beefmaster here, and here’s a report i typed up in school, on Louis Pasteur. Hope you enjoy!

Louis Pasteur. He was quite a man. In fact, without him, we would have no ice cream. Well we would, but it would be bad for you. Well it is, but this could make you DIE. Think of that next time you munch on some ice cream!

Now let’s begin…

Louis Pasteur was born 1822, on December 27th, in Dole France. When Pasteur was 28, he got a science degree. He then started to teach physics and chemistry. Pasteur took the entrance test twice at college. He was already good enough the first time, but not for himself. The second try, he got the 4th highest score! One day he was approached by a winemaker, who said his wine was turning sour! The culprit, was mini microbes. Though the yeast fermented it, the microbes turned it sour. They were like anti yeast! This led Louis Pasteur to discover the process of pasteurization; Heating alcohol to destroy the microbes inside it. Soon, the government of France asked him for help. You guessed it! They wanted some healthy ice cream. Oh… they just wanted his help with the livestock of France dropping dead. That’s cool too I guess… Anyway, the cause was bacteria. And he found out how to make a vaccine; A type of medicine that prevents sickness. He found out that an animal only gets a sickness once, than its done with that type of bacteria. So he came up with the idea of getting an animal a healthy version of the sickness, so they couldn’t get it again.

So now you know who invented those horrible shots you get at the doctor. WAIT A MINUTE… THOSE POOR 1800 FOOLS! Anyway, I hope you now realize how important this person was, even if he invented the shot! (Also, just in case, he saved millions of cow lives. Just a thought.)

  1. Wow.. I didn’t realize that he was responsible for two of my favorite things – Ice Cream AND Vaccines! When were needles invented? I’m trying to picture what that was like and what type of stickers would make up for that nightmare!
