Where viruses and bacteria cause cancer Strictly speaking, cancer is not contagious.
But a fair number of cancers are clearly caused by viral or bacterial infections: lymphomas can be triggered by the Epstein-Barr virus, which also causes mononucleosis. Cervical cancers can be caused by human papillomavirus, the major reason behind the development of a vaccine against it.
He is a grand mystery and everyone has tried to understand him in his own way, according to his spiritual light or vision.

The Brahmi script diversified into numerous local variants classified together as the Brahmic scripts.
Dozens of modern scripts used across South Asia have descended from Brahmi, making it one of the world's most influential writing traditions.
The most recent is the pale brown Zanci layer, which was laid down mostly between 25,000 and 15,000 years ago.
The best-known Brahmi inscriptions are the rock-cut edicts of Ashoka in north-central India, dating to 250–232 BCE.
The script was deciphered in 1837 by James Prinsep, an archaeologist, philologist, and official of the East India Company.
Thence the name was adopted in the influential work of Georg Bühler, albeit in the variant form "Brahma".
The Gupta script of the 5th century is sometimes called "Late Brahmi".The origin of the script is still much debated, with most scholars concurring that Brahmi was derived from or at least influenced by one or more contemporary Semitic scripts, while others favor the idea of an indigenous origin or connection to the much older and as-yet undeciphered Indus script.
