Dogs Smell Cancer – level 1

27-09-2021 15:00

Dogs have very good noses. They can smell cancer. Italian scientists train dogs to smell prostate cancer. One dog is even faster than a team of doctors. He finds the cancer faster than them!

The scientists do not want to use dogs in hospitals. They want to make an electronic tool. This tool would work like a dog’s nose.

Difficult words: cancer (a very serious disease), prostate (an organ in a man), tool (a little machine).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
