Dogs have an incredibly sensitive sense of smell. They are able to detect various types of cancer through odor signatures in a person’s breath, urine, and skin. Here, we look at how dogs can detect cancer, the types of cancer they can smell, and how medical professionals can use dogs in cancer research and diagnostics.
Crohn’s disease is a long-term condition that affects the gastrointestinal tract. People do not usually die from the disease, but it can increase the risk of severe or fatal complications. In this article, learn about life-threatening complications of Crohn’s disease, including their symptoms.
