Thats weird but that could be a good way(and cheap;) ) of finding out if you have cancer or not.

And as saying goes, dogs, is there anything they cant do?:p

i read that in the news paper, the dogs only have around 50%+ chance of detecting it... but still useful

That's a 50% chance I'm willing to take if I'm low on funds, or if I'm just precarious.

Actually this has been around for several years and it has higher than 50% success rate. Tumors let off certain enzymes that the dogs can detect.

There have been shows about this on History Channel and Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.

As usual many in mainstream science and medicine are rejecting this.
