By Daniel Pouzzner, 2000-Apr-11/12 Sexuality is an indispensable mechanism whereby biological evolution bridged the immense gap between asexual/Lamarckian unicellular organisms, and the now plainly preeminent humans. For tens of millions of generations, the lineage leading to humanity has been formed and continued exclusively by sexual procreation. The precise microbiological mechanics of sexuality vary widely from species to species, while the functional consequences - strictly sexual procreation, in which each individual has precisely two parents, each contributing roughly half of the individual's genome - is absolutely conserved.
A key objective of the Section of Cancer Information (CIN) is to measure the global burden of cancer. IARC is the definitive reference source for the provision of information concerning worldwide cancer vital statistics and this activity is coordinated within CIN. Critical to this objective is the production of Cancer Incidence in Five Continents (CI5), which IARC has published in nine successive volumes over the last 45 years.
