The author, April Pederson seems overly critical about the cancer-sniffing dog experiments. I agree that a dog who detects only late-stage lung cancer is a complete waste of time, but breast cancer is one of the most highly treatable cancers, and it has an excellent survival rate. She also states that McCulloch's dog detected melanoma and that is not remarkable because melanoma is common. I agree that a single anecdotal cases is not evidence. However, she is wrong to say melanoma is common. Melanoma is one of the most rare forms of skin cancer, accounting for only 4% of cases. It gets a lot of attention because it is aggressive and the survival rate is fairly low. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma make up the vast majority of skin cancer cases, and they progress slowly and are highly treatable with very good survival rates compared to melanoma and other cancers. The authors skepticism isn't neccessary in the case of the cancer-sniffing dogs. Not much work has been done, and if it attracts more attention, there will be a larger body of research worth criticizing. Since it seems to show some promise with high detection rates, I'm fairly certain it will attract more attention and when it does it will either be vindicated or debunked.
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Guest/Susan : [/b. Somehow I came across the title of this book and was looking to buy a copy. I checked my usual sources: Amazon, thrift books, etc. I was astonished that the book was selling for no less than $75. Now I was on the hunt....I had to read it.

Guest/Susan : Long story short...I finally found a copy to read on line. What a terrible tragedy!
