"I charge that they (medical men) have encouraged superstition and humbug by the germ theory of disease. I do not question the existence of infinitesimal microorganisms, but they are the result not the cause of disease. They are scavengers, their legitimate work is to clean out the sewers of our bodies. Whenever their is decay, pus or decomposing matter these little life-scavengers are doing their work of neutralisation, sanitation and purification. They feast upon effete decaying animal matter. They are beneficial helpers to an important end."
