On Friday, 21 September 2007, in Lyon, France, we lost a great human being, a staunch advocate for public health, a thorough and delving scientist, and a humanitarian par excellence... During his tenure at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Tomatis was instrumental in creating what has come to be recognized and known as the monument of primary prevention of cancer: the IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risk to Humans (also known as the “orange books”)... Not only did Tomatis design and develop the IARC Monographs, he was a principal leader in the scientific community in recognizing the essential value of transplacental and transgenerational carcinogenesis and developing methodologies to determine the influence of early-life exposures... Upon arriving, he formed the Unit of Chemical Carcinogenesis... There he envisioned and began to effectuate more than a monolithic cancer research program—he insisted on a solid effort on primary prevention of cancer... Tomatis and IARC staff brought together working groups of independent scientists with vast knowledge of chemical carcinogenesis to evaluate the available information used to prepare the objective IARC Monographs... Being a renaissance man, Tomatis also wrote books for the public based on his medical, scientific, and humanitarian experiences: The Unlimited Research 1974, Seen from the Inside 1981, Natural History of the Researcher 1985, The Laboratory 1993, The Reelection 1996, and The Refugee 2005... His gifts to humanity are well recognized in saved lives and a cadre of scientists influenced by his magnanimity, honesty, sense of ethics, and moral character... Most will remember Tomatis for his brilliance in science and public health thought, but he will more likely be venerated for his generosity and compassion... His heroic scientific determination and his adventurous spirit and love of people inspired Tomatis to live life to its fullest... He is survived by his wife, Delia, in Trieste, and their son, Paolo, who lives and works in Rome... His gifts to humanity are well recognized in saved lives and a cadre of scientists influenced by his magnanimity, honesty, sense of ethics, and moral character.
