Rudolf Virchow was a German pathologist who studied under Johannes Muller. Virchow conflicted the idea that disease was a pain for body at large or one of its humor, wanting to find the location of diseases. In 1849, he married Rose Mayer and became the chair of pathological anatomy at the University of Würzburg. Virchow studied medicine in Berlin at the military academy of Prussia, where he graduated in 1843. He became professor in 1847. Due to political reasons, he moved to Würzburg two years later, where he worked on anatomy. In 1856, he returned to Berlin.He summarized the cell theory with the Latin phrase "omnis cellula a cellula" which means all cells come up from cells, in 1855. Virchow came up with the third part of the cell theory that states the “all cells come from preexisting cells.” In Die Cellularpathologie, he set out methods and objectives of pathology and demonstrated that cell theory applied to diseased tissue as well as healthy. Later in his life he committed himself to archaeology and anthropology, becoming friends with Schliemann and team up in the excavation of Troy. He was a member of the city council in 1861. He was elected to the Lower House of the Prussian National Assembly in 1861. During the Franco-Prussian War, Virchow worked to fight plague among soldiers. In 1858, the great pathologist Rudolf Virchow wrote a book titled Cellular Pathology. In this book Virchow formulated his concepts that changes in cells accounted for diseases in organs. Subsequently, Virchow postulated the response to injury model of atherosclerosis. Today, a revolution in our knowledge of vascular injury has essentially supported Virchow's concept of atherosclerosis. Virchow can rightly be called the father of experimental pathology, that part of pathology, which is concerned, with the mechanistic basis of disease.
Some mention should be made that many experts are advocating a return to Virchov's theory on the origins of cancer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:26, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
Missing date for first meat inspection adoption in Germany
The article states "He established that human infection occurs through contaminated pork. This directly led to the importance of meat inspection, which was first adopted in Berlin" - so far so good. I believe the specific date at hand should also be mentioned, whatever it is (I don't know myself yet, so this is why I ask.) 2A02:8388:1600:C80:BE5F:F4FF:FECD:7CB2 (talk) 21:39, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
