    Default How does Touching Receipts Harm my Health?

    I just read an article on exposure to BPA via thermal register receipts (http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/why...touch-receipts). What the story does not make clear is whether the paper itself transmits BPA, or whether it is only present in the ink.

    I keep receipts of all charge account transaction to balance my statement every month. I also keep receipts for anything connected with my home business. I never touch the printing, only the paper. My exposure is minimal, but I'd like to know whether the chemical is in the paper, or merely in the ink. Anybody?

    Apparently, the BPA is mainly in the paper; http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...1022143628.htm

    Thanks, Grulla. I'll make a point of refusing receipts. I often do that anyway.
