Relationship between Louis Pasteur and Joseph Lister?

GRAWH! MOO!

Please do ignore the idiotic first answer. There wasn't really much of a relationship between Pasteur and Lister since they were in different countries and all that, but Lister did use Pasteur's work to help him with his whole antiseptic phenomena.

Through reading Pasteur's work on finding 'germs' in his beetroot beer, and how 'germs' affect other things, Lister applied this to septicemia that was common after operations or any other kind of cut and it made sense. He then used carbolic acid when operating, spraying everything from the instruments used, to his own hands.

Seriously, if you have nothing better to do but put idiotic comments on people's questions that they generally may need help with, just go away and get a job to fill your time IDIOT!
