 Title    Monochiralities Caused by Sexuality  
 Abstract    It is shown how the interaction of sexuality and chirality causes monochiralities of the biosphere. In [1], Rikken and Raupach say: "We show experimen-tally that magnetochiral anisotropy can give rise to an enan-tiomeric excess in a photochemical reaction driven by unpolarized light in a parallel magnetic field, which sug-gests that this effect may have played a role in the origin of the homochirality of life."* Also the fact that outside the tropics the sun goes always to the right (left) on the northern (southern) hemisphere suggests that this effect may, via the sun-dependent growth of organisms, have played a role in the origin of the homochirality of life.
