a clue... it begins with B
Actually, I think it could be possible. Im not saying that I necasarily buy into this story or not. but it is possible. Scientists are using dogs to
"Cancer cells emit different metabolic waste products than normal cells," Broffman said. "The differences between these metabolic products are so
great that they can be detected by a dog's keen sense of smell, even in the early stages of disease."
The idea is not that far fetched.
I can tell you from personal experience that MRSA Sepsis puts out a specific smell on people who have it. My grandmother had it. It was horrible. The
bacteria was eating her alive. Doctors had to doo several surgeries a day for about one month. She was in the hospital for aobut 6 months. They had to
remove almost all muscle from from just below the rib cage all the way down to the top of the vulva, along with some bone.
Anyhow, She put of this smell. A nasty smell. one that you cant forget after three or four times smelling it.
well about a year after that ordeal, I smelled a similar smell on another person, lo and behold they had MRSA sepsis. in very advanced cases the smell
is VERY strong.
So, I will not say it is BS at all. Infact it is very possible.
My grandma lived by the way, even though the morbidity rate ( percentage of people who live) is something like 2 %.I think that is the morbitity rate.
Its a low number any way. She cant walk any more though, She is mostly paralyzed from the waist down. She does have a little movement in her feet.
