  1. Granted that BP-A appears to be harmless, even when used in cups and bottles from which people drink directly. If I were going all precautionary, I might exclude BP-A from items designed for contact with mucus membranes, like eye drop containers and cups, but worry less about items that would only touch mucus membranes under very odd conditions — like the cash register receipt contains the classified info and you have to feed it to your baby to keep the bad guys from getting it.
    If you are sucking on your driver’s license, I suspect you’re already reducing your odds of entering the gene pool, so genetic issues would be less important.
