Red Rover, Red Rover! Send "Marine the Cancer-Sniffing Lab" Right Over!
Have you heard about “Marine” yet? She is a labrador retriever in Japan that has been specially trained to sniff out colorectal cancer (in stool or breath samples) with 98% accuracy! How awesome is that? Imagine a future where you go for your annual exam, and an adorable dog is brought in to happily sniff your butt and your stinky breath….I don’t know about you, but I'd be down with that :)
Until that day arrives, be sure to get your colorectal cancer screening and colonoscopy as recommended by your doctor (see link below for current, general guidelines). After all, colonoscopies do save lives! That's a straight-up fact!
P.S. How clever are those Get Your Rear in Gear folks!? I love their recent PSA (above).
