Nonfat milk cause mucus?

I was wondering if non fat milk causes mucus like whole milk.

Could someone describe what "causing mucus" actually means? I don't have a milk allergy or problems resulting from the quantities of milk I consume, but I've heard this phrase before in connection with milk (from my sister, for example). I am puzzled about what part of the body exibits the mucus, if it's in a part of the body that doesn't normally produce mucus or the symptoms are merely an increase in the amount of mucus that's normally present in the mouth or throat or stomach. My imagination is running wild trying to figure this out but I am also curious, so that I can react intelligently the next time someone says this to me -- rather than simply saying Hmmm .

Thanks for the enlightenment!

The mucus forms in the nasal passages and affects breathing and speech. In other words snot.

Ah, thanks for the enlightenment. I shall express sympathy the next time someone says they respond to milk this way.
