Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

A professor at my school did most of the research for this!
i don’t think there is anything more important than this video. a dog could hike to the top of mount everest and this video would be more important. the first tennis match in space could happen and this video would still be more important. a dog, after climbing to the top of mount everest, could then blast off into space and win the first astral tennis match and it would not be more important than this video. i will never be ready to jingle my bells
