Housecall for Health: Cancer Sniffing Dogs?
Could man’s best friend be the newest tool in the fight against cancer?
FOX News Radio’s Jill Nado reports in this edition of “Housecall for Health”:
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.
