Can dogs really “smell” cancer?! Another false believe or it is real?! Find out here!
The stories about dogs warning their owners of an early phase of cancer is told for years. But, is it true?
Recently, few scientific researches appeared that support the claims that the dogs, especially the ones trained for this, could “smell” cancer.
The experiments with dogs that were exposed on samples of breath, urine and other bodily fluids at persons suffering of cancer, showed that dogs could recognize lungs cancer, prostate and colon cancer.
There were even cases where the “diagnostician” dogs were better than laboratory researches, finding more right answers.
The researchers believe that thanks to the thinned feeling of smell on the dogs could help them recognize organic compounds that create malign cancer cells.
