In yet another example, a Labrador retriever was trained to detect the scent of colorectal cancer from breath and stool samples with greater than 90 percent accuracy.21 Using breath samples, the dog could detect colorectal cancer with 91 percent accuracy and had an amazing 97 percent accuracy with stool samples. The researchers concluded:
“This study shows that a specific cancer scent does indeed exist and that cancer-specific chemical compounds may be circulating throughout the body. These odor materials may become effective tools in colorectal cancer screening.”

Hopefully soon, we can have “disease detectors” that mimic the dog’s ability.
Either that or an array of dogs that give you a sniff as you walk into the hospital.
Maybe that’s the future of Gooferment “healthcare”?
