nevinai: A question about contracting hepatitis c.

I've read alot of FAQs on hep-c to learn about the risks and ways of contracting the disease ... there's been some mention of the possibility of contracting it through sharing a straw when 'snorting' drugs, and there were vague mentions of mucus being involved in the transmission. It hasn't been mentioned if hep c can be transmitted if infected blood is ingested or comes in contact with your mouth ... but I know alot of things can be absorbed through ones oral mucosa. Does anyone know if its possible to contract the disease that way ?
