Cancer sniffing Canines Dogs are indeed man’s best friend, but other than their companionship and ability to aid us in various matters such as sniffing out drugs, chasing down crooks and guiding the visually-impaired, they are recently also known to be able to sniff out cancer states as well. To top that off, research shows that they can identify food and produce that has been contaminated with fecal matter.  Fecal contamination in food can occur in a flash, and there are many opportunities for it to spread rapidly.
