    NTM must be similar to walking pneumonia which among others can be caused by mycoplasma. I always wonder that so many conditions can be treated with anti-malaria drugs. It’s a pity that in this article two antimalarial drugs used haven’t been named. It is likely though that one of them is chloroquine.
    “….The bacterium is capable of sensing and responding to threats in its environment”. Wow! The dog is buried here.
    Sometime ago I read an article about causes of influenza. The ship left the port and every sailor was healthy and there was no influenza in the town they left. After two weeks being in the open sea suddenly all sailors became ill with influenza. At the same time an influenza outbreak started in the Asian town they were heading to but they were still far away. Some tests like that were made and some scientists have been considering the changes in the environment like climate, temperature, humidity as a cause of influenza. It’s possible because there are more people sick in winter.
