Trained dogs can sniff out malaria from a child's dirty sock

As many dog owners know, their pets love carrying round the worn and smelly sock of their owners. Now British and African scientists have used that trait to train dogs to sniff out malaria from a child's dirty sock. The sock sniffing ability could be used to quickly spot those with the deadly disease before they show symptoms so they can be treated and stop the disease spreading.
