Researchers at Michigan State University say they’ve discovered that locusts can smell cancer. The scientists say the insects could differentiate between three types of mouth cancer and normal cells, offering a ‘very fast’ way to detect cancer.
There have been other studies using everything from dogs to ants, but research hasn’t moved forward because scientists can’t find a commercial benefit. Don’t get too excited…the research hasn’t been peer-reviewed to check for any errors.
