What Ate My Mum? And Will It Eat Me?

Runtime: 47m | Release date: 2014

Cancer is a leading cause of death, responsible for about 13% of all deaths globally.

In the developed world, it claims the life of about one in four people. According to the World Health Organisation, this figure will rise to one in three by 2020. Most of us, if not all of us, know someone close to us who has died from cancer. My mother died from the next wave of asbestos-related cancer sufferers - the DIY generation. This documentary is a global look at living a long and healthy life, but it is told through my intimate story of my own search to understand my mother’s death.

This is the journey of a son (Marcus) trying to understand his mother’s death from cancer and what can be learned to achieve a long and healthy disease-free life. If not everyone who breathes in asbestos dies from cancer, then what are the other factors that contribute to their demise.

This story is not about pointing blame or finding a miracle cure for cancer, it’s about how we choose to live with consideration to environment, diet, exercise, lifestyle, attitude and how we cope with major life events.

Great film! You never realize what hiding your emotion and not dealing with grief can do to you but it's best to cry, scream or whatever it takes to relieve yourself. I personally think kick boxing will do the trick. Thanks for another eye opening film.

i could only clearly understand the commentator in this film. Mostly everyone else interviewed sounded like they had a mouthful of marbles. Not sure if there was a microphone difference or what. From what I could hear and understand, it seemed pretty interesting though!

What a B E A U T I F U L documentary ! What a nice surprise to find out he, Marcus is the Brother from Cindy O'Meara.
This Film touched me so deep.: over 20 years ago, my father who was a Doctor ( Anesthesist), Vegan, Yoga Practitioner,experiencing all Kinds of diets (macrobiotic, raw Food,Juices,rawHoney, vegetables, nuts, fruits as organic as he could find that time (in the sixtys, in Brasil ) WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER (in 1994.Left this World in 1996). It was devastating to my whole family but I think afected me, the oldest daugther, the most ! Well, how I aparently overcome this TRAGEDY and how I've finally understood the possible causes, roots of Dad's Cancer, is a long long Story. So making it short, what empathysed me with ( or about?) this Movie was the Conclusion from Marcus Investigation, research : the Big Role the Emotions(sadness from loosing so many family members one after another, hiding the sorrows Etc...) afected profoundly his Mother's Health.And as I see , what WE all should learn and do about it in order to prevent or even reverse completely a Cancer.
I THANK You Marcus for sharing your Story. BEAUTIFUL FAMILY! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Márcia
