Dogs Who Sniff Out Cancer
From the The Cancer Blog
I found the link to this article in The Cancer Blog from inside my feedreader browsing headlines of Engadget.com. Engadget is a part of the Weblogs, Inc. Network - a network of more than 70 blogs, and there is a lot of (non pet-related) neat articles and topics.
They say the research is exciting because if dogs can really find out things (like cancer) that technology and human testing could not find out, well perhaps a lot of sick people might be treated sooner. Dogs have a high sense of smell. The theory, is that cancerous cells emits a slight odor. Put the two together and ~voila~.
Of course, anyone who has ever had a dog, would know this statement to be true. You can be outside having a BBQ, your pet dog is sleeping upstairs on your bed and pillow, but then when you unwrap a Slice of Cheese ... what happens? Your dogs will be at your feet in two seconds flat!
Please Note: That was NOT the last post in [The Blog] ...
