Like warning labels on tobacco/cigarettes with photos of users suffering variety health conditions. But users tend to ingore the warnings anyway.

Of course no offense to dogs, understandable it’s in their nature and that they’re animals. It’s how they collect data. Dogs do have special ability to detect about any diseases you may carry or what you ate in past few days. Even can detect about any metallic elements within range.

Humans lacking special abilities with exploitation of using tools behaving like dogs is so degrading. Isn’t that what devolution of humanity have come to now?
Before technology, people have to use their brains for solving problems, even simple math without using calculator. Now we have technology, even AI, to do just about all of our thinkings. So with photos, maybe in shortly future, smell, taste, touch, and hear, as all 5 senses that come with warning labels to get through population’s thick heads, people could finally say, “Oh, I see now.”
