Darwin’s Theory and Cancer

Evolution News & Views: Darwin’s Theory and Cancer: "The evolutionary biology literature is generally tangential to Darwin’s central claim that all natural biological complexity arose by chance and necessity. It is the cancer literature that actually addresses Darwin’s mechanism—random variation and natural selection—as applied to functional biological complexity. It is a model of biological disintegration.
