Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Study finds dogs can accurately sniff out cancer in blood samples

*This image is copyright of its original author

"Scientists believe they have found a new way to detect cancer and it involves man's best friend.
Researchers at BioScentDX conducted a study where dogs were able to pick out blood samples from patients who had been diagnosed with malignant lung cancer.
Researchers trained four beagles to smell the difference between the normal blood samples and those with lung cancer cells.
Three of the dogs were able to accurately detect the lung cancer samples almost 97% of the time.
However, one of the beagles named Snuggles seemed unmotivated to participate in the study.
Researchers hope this will eventually lead to new non-invasive ways to screen for cancer and other deadly disease.
The team has plans too continue their research in November, but this time they will use breast caner samples."

Dogs have a much stronger sense of smell than we have. Since Labradors can sniff out drugs, this does not come as a surprise.
