the quality of mucous

can anyone tell me, is mucous the same size in children as it is in adults? i mean the little molecules inside mucous. if the organ or whatever it is that makes mucous is smaller, then surely the stuff that comes out of it is smaller? i don't mean the quantity, i mean that which makes up mucous.

if you know the answer to this, then please let me know. maybe it depends on where the moon is in the sky.


  • If the machinery to produce mucous is sufficiently large in a child, why does it need to get bigger as we grow?

    It implies that mucous production is beneficial in some way.

    But what way?

    Maybe as primordial monkeymen we could frighten cave lions away by sneezing at them or something?
