It’s amazing how many ways that dogs help and enrich our lives. We’re used to them being our companions, guardians and helpers but now they are even helping us fight disease.
Scientists have been utilizing dogs to help us better understand how cancer affects us, as well as to troubleshoot possible cures. More impressive is that dogs have the ability to “sniff out” cancer cells making early diagnosis possible. Now scientists are working to use cutting edge technology to replicate this to create early warning tools.
It’s pretty cool stuff and in this episode I chat with Arlene Weintraub about her new book Heal: The Vital Role Of Dogs In The Search For Cancer Cures to tell us all about it.
