Comments P.6 left column 4th paragraph: "There is also independent evidence that there are some bacteria that divide slowly in their natural environment. The aphid symbiont Buchnera aphidicola is estimated to double every 175–292 h in its host [primary sources], and Mycobacterium leprae doubles every 300–600 h on mouse footpads [BNID 115547], not its natural environment, but one that is probably similar to the human skin."
