I'll just blurt this one straight out.
Do any of you think that you might be able to smell disease, death and/or cancer?
I think science is just scratching the surface regarding this issue. Dogs (maybe cats also) that can apparently sniff out cancer, and Doctors and Scientists trying to replicate the dogs senses? Possibly some early work being done with breath samples and ovarian cancer detection?
I have heard people on here say that they can sense death, but are there 'physical' reasons why they can do this?
I've had a couple of experiences recently that make me think that some of us may be able to 'smell'illnesses, and after doing some googling, this appears to possibly be the case?
I personally think that I know someone with the smell of death, and I believe another person I know may have undiagnosed cancer? A subtle odour(bitter/toxic?) that seems to come from the pores of the skin? I'm not talking about BO.
Some older diseases (like rheumatic fever) had their own odour. Diabetes and a few others do too.
I'm more interested in the ones that aren't discussed. Does this ring a bell with any of you? I'd love to hear of your experiences.
