Cancer detection

There appears to be no end to how valuable dogs can be. A woman in California is training dogs to detect ovarian cancer by sniffing a person's breath http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2012/11/r...detect-cancer/

Dogs really are amazing.

They can be trained to assist the blind, the deaf and to detect cancer, epilepsy etc.

I remember research being done to see if they could break down what exactly it is that the dogs detect in the scent of cancer patients to see if a mechanical sniffer device could do the same job. As far as I know, they are still researching but haven't come up with a solution yet
