Most Cancer Subjected Movies

Cancer is a group of many diseases caused by out-of-control multiplication and spread of abnormal cells. There are over 100 different types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.
 
 
Cancer harms the body when damaged cells divide uncontrollably to form lumps or masses of tissue called tumors (except in the case of leukemia where cancer prohibits normal blood function by abnormal cell division in the blood stream). Tumors can grow and interfere with the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems and they can release hormones that alter body function. Tumors that stay in one spot and demonstrate limited growth are generally considered to be benign.
 
 

The branch of medicine concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer is oncology.
 
Cancer affects people at all ages with the risk for most types increasing with age. It caused about 13% of all human deaths  in 2007 (7.6 million).
 
Cancers are primarily an environmental disease with 90-95% of cases due to lifestyle and environmental factors and 5-10% due to genetics. Common environmental factors leading to cancer death include: tobacco (25-30%), diet and obesity (30-35%), infections (15-20%), radiation, stress, lack of physical activity, environmental pollutants. These environmental factors cause abnormalities in the genetic material of cells.
 
Some cancers can be caused by infection. This is especially true in animals such as birds but also in humans with viruses responsible for up to 20% of human cancers worldwide.
 
Greater than 30% of cancer is preventable via avoiding risk factors including: tobacco, overweight or obesity , low fruit and vegetable intake, physical inactivity, alcohol, sexually transmitted infection, air pollution. This can be accomplished by avoiding carcinogens or altering their metabolism, pursuing a lifestyle or diet that modifies cancer-causing factors and/or medical intervention.

World’s Shortest Movie: “Experiment With Life”

video

Every day we are doing some experiments with our life. Every day we are trying to fill some different colour in our life to overcome the same black & white life.
Using these philosophies of life Dinesh Shivnath Upadhyaya from Mumbai (India) made an experimental movie "Experiment With Life". This movie is unique & in real sense an experiment because it contain no characters, no dialogues, no sound & not even credits.

Dinesh Upadhyaya who is a teacher & writter by profession is also a serious movie watcher. After watching great classic movies from great directors like Satyajit Ray, Hrishkesh Mukherji, Guru Dutt, Roman Polanski, De Sica, Federico Fellini, Alfred Hitchcock, Roberto Benigni made a deep impact on him.

He always wanted to do something with movies. Since movie making is most expensive & unit work, he decided to make such a movie which requires no money but fulfill his dream.
Sometimes a single image or a single word or a slogan or a symbol enough to express the whole story. He used this formula in making his odd but unique movie. Being M.Sc. in Physical Chemistry, he spends more than 8 years in chemistry lab. So he used scientific approach to express his meaning of life. In his shortest movie, unknown hands filling Violet colour chemical from a conical flask to a test tube. Here he symbolically wants to express that test tube is our life & we are trying to fill colour from conical flask to in it. Here conical flask may be our society, our surroundings or may be whole world. Unclear background expresses the uncertainty of our life. He intentially used Violet because this "cool" colour is the highest colour in the visible spectrum & it relates to self knowledge/ spiritual awareness. It is the union with our higher self, with spirituality, and our higher consciousness.
He totally aware that most of the viewers were going to criticize his creation, going to laugh on his creation but he has faith on it.

He claim that "Experiment With Life" is world's shortest meaningful movie. Reason behind his claim is strong because the length of movie is just 0.4 second i.e. 0.0067 minute i.e. 0.00011 hour.
