Sniffing Dog Could Detect Rectal Cancer


An eight-year-old Labrador retriever named Marine trained at Kyushu University has a ninety-eight percent accurate rating in detecting colo-rectal cancer.

The Lab was tested with 320 stool and breath samples from healthy subjects and 40 breath and stool samples from subjects with cancer. Marine was correct 95 percent of the time with the breath samples and 98 percent of the time with the stool samples.

However, Marine cannot detect precancerous conditions like polyps that are detectable and treatable with a colonoscopy.

Oh well..

When I first saw the article my mind went to a cancer clinic with patients bent over, shorts down, in a line with a handler walking a dog back and forth behind them. Cold nose anyone.

  Dogs are amazing  
For about two weeks before my dad died last summer, his dog rarely left his side and followed him everywhere he went.

That will be non judgmental and faithful to you no matter what.
