Gaak! I hate this kind of sloppy teleological statement: "reasons" to go multicellular... This sounds like a cluster of unicells had a conference, weighed the advantages of going multicellular, and that some agreed to do so.

IMO, statements of this type are a main reason for confusion about evolution among non-biologists (including, but not exclusively, creationists).
