Give a Dog a Bone

Headline: Dogs may be able to sniff out cancer

For the study, five dogs, three Labrador retrievers and two Portuguese water dogs, were trained by a professional instructor to respond differently to exhaled breath samples of healthy and cancer patients.
So, basically, they're conducting Lab tests. Where's the breakthrough in that? I feel sorry for all the felines out there who have been conducting Cat scans for years and nobody has given them any credit for their efforts.

Early detection of cancer is wonderful but wouldn't it be just as beneficial for mankind to train dogs to sniff out sexually transmitted diseases as well?

I mean, there is hardly a need for extensive training, if you think about it, most dogs usually head for that region anyway. However, the control subjects would have to be very brave to participate in the initial testing process.

I think the above anonymous poster is either a control subject who went wrong, or a victim of testicular cancer. They've obviously been removed, and he obviously deserved it.
