Can Bees Detect Cancer in Humans?

Okay folks, as far as I am concerned, this story is right up there with the first moon landing. Scientists are continuing to study the honeybee's hyper-sensitive sense of smell. Apparently, this sense of smell is so keen that honeybees can detect odors in human breath that indicate certain illnesses, including lung and skin cancer, tuberculosis and diabetes. Now, a designer in Portugal named Susana Soares has produced some glass devices that can be used as diagnostic tools by Dr. Honeybee. Check out this short video from The Weather Channel: http://www.weather.com/video/bees-able-to-detect-cancer-41597

If you could see me now, I would be hugging my beehives and mumbling over and over "we're not worthy . . ."
