The purpose of this report is to investigatehuman growth and development based on a documentary film. The movie is a 2007 produced film, called “Inside of The Living Body”. This documentary explains different stages of growth and development in human body. These stages startright from time a single cell divides and becomes fetus then to a baby, to old age then to death. For the purpose of gaining anunderstanding of the film it was watched by two of our neighbors, of which one is a clinician and the other a pediatrician.
The film is a rear movie to come by as it explains what is beyond naked eye of humans(Dosani 39). In the film, it shows how the body cells replicates, start to function, how cells divide andspecializes to perform their functions second by second. Metamorphosis occurs within us each second even after we fully grown. For instance, functioning of cells is a multimillion process aided through co-ordination of the brain(Dosani 39). The brain coordinates to nerve cells for and interprets the information leading to cell division, growth or removal of waste matter out of the body. All these processes ocuur from time of conception to time of death of person. Moreover, the film addresses wonders of aging impact on human life. For instance, it depicts on facial bones which replaces themselves every two years and this changes results to redefining of human DNA leading to change of our faces and appearances. In conclusion, what takes place inside body each second translates to physical changes in human body.
