FMTV - What Ate My Mum? And Will It Eat Me?

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.

Please be advised that although we feel there are important messages in this film, we also acknowledge that there may be conflicting ideologies that challenge beliefs. We like to encourage our viewers to do their own diligent research to determine which is the right approach for them as we regard nutrition and health as being highly individualized and not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

I watch a lot of programs about cancer and whilst this one touched on the importance of good organic nutrition one factor stood out. When cancer is diagnosed it is crucial to have faith in the body to heal itself. It is becoming increasingly clear now that the medical route for treating cancer will lead to death sooner or later. However, by taking an intensive approach with a nutrient dense diet of only fruit and vegetables will cause the cancer to retreat.

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!
