Cancer Sniffing Dogs

Some research has shown that early stage ovarian cancer can alter the way a body smells. So the University of Pennsylvania’s Working Dog Center is training dogs to catch that smell. They’re sniffing away at blood and tissue samples donated by patients.

Scientists say early detection leads to a better survival rate for the disease and as things are now, ovarian cancer is one of the most deadly forms of the disease because it’s often not caught until it’s in an advanced stage.
