Are You Unknowingly Feeding Your Pet Carcinogens?

Quote
Dr. Turesky is able to remove the hair shaft, cut it, break it open and do chemical analysis on it using mass spectrometry methods. He first tried this on his own dogs to see if he could detect exposure to a potential carcinogen in their fur.

He wasn't really expecting to get a positive result because his dogs don't eat grilled steaks or hamburgers. So he was stunned to find that they did indeed have the carcinogen in their fur.

After the experiment with his dogs, Dr. Turesky set up a collaboration with the University of Minnesota's veterinary college to conduct a small pilot study of about 15 canines. Thirteen of those 15 dogs tested positive for the carcinogen in their fur.

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
