Who proposed the Germ Theory of Disease?
While Pasteur was not the first to propose germ theory (Girolamo Fracastoro, Agostino Bassi, Friedrich Henle and others had suggested it earlier), he developed it and conducted experiments that clearly indicated its correctness and managed to convince most of Europe it was true. Today he is often regarded as the father of germ theory and bacteriology, together with Robert Koch.

When was the germ theory discovered?
Louis Pasteur was the first man to stumble across the germ theory, and was discovered in 1861. This then led to many other diseases being found as everyone know knew that germs caused disease. Robert Koch was one of these scientists and he found the cure for two of the most deadliest diseases from the time: cholera and TB (tuberculosis), with the help from a microsope he was able to isolate the germ that caused the disease and so other scientists could then work on how to cure the diseases.
Asked in Louis Pasteur
What was the germ theory that made Louis Pasteur famous?
The germ theory, also called the pathogenic theory of medicine, is a theory that proposes that microorganisms are the cause of many diseases. Although highly controversial when first proposed, it is now a cornerstone of modern medicine and clinical microbiology, leading to such important innovations as antibiotics and hygienic practices.
