Mucus. It helps us. The flow of mucus and secretions over our tender membranes washes away viruses and the like before they can get a toehold. Plus those secretions are full of virus fighting natural molecules which we think have names beginning with the letter k, or possibly c, and l.
mucus mutants, people with dry eyes and the likes suffer for their lack. But could mucus be augmented to help further prevent disease? Consider an environment crowded with coughing, disease-ridden coworkers. Extra cleansing secretions will protect you! New CLEANSING WAVE from Bungco is adapted from existing procholinergic medicines for dry eyes and mouth, and intended to make you make more. Yes you will snort, blow and weep as though you had caught something already, but you will be safe, feel great and work hard!

Making people more moist since... [DIYMatt, Mar 10 2012]
||Some foods tend to increase mucous production. Cow milk is one, I think.
||A lot of work is being done to create this. Do you have a specific formula?
||/A lot of work is being done to create this./
You mean that you perceive the BUNGCO
engineers to be hardworking and diligent, and that
the creation of this product seems very labor
Or do you mean you know that BUNGCO has
competition in this endeavor, and the
competition is working hard?
||Re formula: we will adapt from existing
procholinergic medicines / war gases /
insecticides or possibly a gamiche of the above,
depending on the market.
||But DIY - if real people with money at stake think
that this is a good idea and are working on it I
would love to know more; please link.
||Canine mucus has antiseptic properties not unlike those
suggested here. Proportionally fewer diseases are
transmissable via mucal contact both between canines and
between canines and humans than via human-to-human.
This truth has given rise to
that 'a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's'. This would
be truer if dogs had cleaner appetites.
||I found a link. It's not for mucus production per se, but it
does involve helping people with dry eyes and mouths.
