Alcohol Safety

Category - Intoxication

After entering the human body, when does alcohol first become absorbed into the bloodstream?
  1. When it enters the stomach
  2. When it enters the liver
  3. When it enters the mouth
  4. When it enters the small intestine
Answer: C - Alcohol is first absorbed into the bloodstream soon after entering the mouth.

Though it is only a small amount, some alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream through the walls of the human mouth. The rest of the alcohol then travels down through the rest of the digestive system, where it is further absorbed. This is why some effects can be felt almost immediately after drinking alcohol, while the stronger effects are felt later on.
