Dogs have three-hundred million sensory receptors as against five-milion in humans. Their extraordinary sense of smell can detect the smallest of scents known to be linked to cancer instantly.
A charity, Medical Detection Dogs, is training specialist dogs to detect human diseases. Dr Claire Guest, its founder, says, what dogs are doing is actually revisiting a way in which diagnosis has been done centuries ago.
