Abstract Cancer is the result of the accumulation of mutations in the DNA of somatic tissue during the lifetime of an organism. Therefore, animals that live longer and/or have a larger number of cells should have a higher incidence of cancer. However there appears not to be no clear correlation between the l .. [more]
