he methods of Dr Snow’s used in the 1849 cholera outbreak in London was a superlative example and used in modern of Epidemiology (Peter Vinten-Johansen, 2003) (Frerichs, 2009 ). Dr John Snow was able to build a successful theory based upon statistics and geographical tools, not usual used on that time and which enabled public health organization to combat the disease (Harning, 2015). He used the map by pointed the incidence of the disease, he found that over 500 cases occurred within 10 days over an area of some 250 yards on London’s Broad Street. He investigated for some poison can come from the excreta of cholera patients, the main factors were the water from the Broad street pump and the local people used this source of water. Dr Snow until he died in 1858 not found what caused cholera. In 1876 the German doctor, Robert Koch discovered cholera causes by bacteria called Vibrio cholera (University, 2004) In 1854, the British Parliament applied Snow’s theory of water contamination to successfully diminish the impact of the disease and how to control the spread. this theory and the methodology used by Dr Snow can say is a start point for many applications in all sciences and produce the revolutionary in health and public policy in the UK and whole the world. (Harning, 2015). Snow hypothesis is water contamination is main resource, according to that he start test water source Figure 1, there two water companies had drawn upon water from the River Thames that had been contaminated by sewage. He check houses and interviewed people about their source of drinking water to find the cholera mortality to the source of water and he found more mortality between those drinking the water supplied by the water companies, and he use these data in his research process, he turned his attention to the five pumps near Golden Square, which most of them contained contaminants that were visible to the human eye.
