Post Breath Odor Can Be Key To Detecting Diseases

Using body odor to detect disease is not new. Patients with full-blown, uncontrolled diabetes produce a condition called ketoacidosis, in which their skin not only tastes sweet, but also gives off a strong, recognizable odor that smells like nail polish remover.

I think they call it the Zackly Disease

That would be when your breath smells zackly like your ass brush those snags and floss too. I have one client that comes in with the zacklys and he needs to be at least four feet away at all times poor guy and he has a good grille but bad breath and a nice guy I don't get it

Why not? We are already training dogs to sniff out cancer long before standard testing can detect it.

I remember seeing this one on TV not long ago. A guy demonstrated his dog's ability to sniff out cancerous cells by placing some between two bandages and sticking it to a woman's body. He also stuck several other bandages on her body and the dog knew exactly which one it was. Amazing!

I ask a doctor about it and he said we would be using it if really worked. I am not saying the dog could not be trained to make a hit on a smell. I would like to see more test done if it is really true.

There has been a few controlled studies on this. And they do have dogs that were able detect cancer in patients on a pretty regular basis. I remember reading, in one controlled test, the dogs kept picking out a person who was NOT supposed to have cancer. But since the dogs kept picking out this person, They had the person tested Again, and was found to have some type of cancer.

They have dogs that can tell minutes before someone is going to have a heart-attack and other that can detect certain types of seizures before they happen. they got damn dogs that can dial 911 and stuff.. freakin' amazing.

They are finding that a dogs sense of smell, is actually many times higher than they originally thought.
