BPA is absorbed in the mouth; could explain high blood levels

Will the FDA reconsider about BPA ?

A new experiment with dogs finds that Bisphenol-A (BPA) can be absorbed in the mouth and pass directly into the bloodstream, just as nitroglycerin under the tongue. This way it bypasses detoxification in the liver after absorption in the gut. The result is that much more biologically active BPA is available to possibly cause health effects, with major implications for how much risk BPA may pose for human health.
