Mucus and Food
Name: Sheila P.
My husband says certain foods "produce mucus." I say
that's nonsense, mucus membranes produce mucus in response to external
conditions, regardless of which foods you eat. Which of these positions
is closer to being correct?
I am not sure mucus production is what is happening physiologically, but
several serious singers I know avoid dairy products, especially milk, for
several hours prior to performing.
