Massive amounts of harmful sterilant may be absorbed into bloodstream

A scientific study has found that receipts from ATM’s, grocery stores, fast food restaurants and gas stations contain massive amounts of bisphenol A (BPA), the harmful chemical that is known to cause fertility problems and cancer.

Huge quantities of the chemical were discovered coating 40%, or two fifths, of all U.S. thermal activated paper receipts in a study conducted by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C.

The group commissioned the University of Missouri Division of Biological Sciences to undertake the research. The laboratory, one of the world’s foremost research facilities, found that in some cases pure BPA made up 3% of the total weight of the receipt.

The lab also discovered that the chemical was easily transferable from the receipt onto anything it came into contact with, including the skin of anyone handling the paper.

Previous studies, including recent research by Swiss scientists, have found that BPA from receipts can transfer to skin and penetrate so deeply that it cannot be washed off and may even enter the bloodstream.

Some of the researchers also discovered that alcohol-based sanitizers can increase BPA penetration into the skin.

There are also concerns that BPA from receipts could be transferred from skin onto food and enter the body through ingestion.

Major retailers using the BPA-containing receipts include McDonald’s, CVS, KFC, Whole Foods, Walmart, and the U.S. Postal Service, according to the EWG research. Safeway was found to have the highest amounts of BPA on their receipts, at a level of up to 41 milligrams.

There are readily available non-BPA thermal paper receipts already being used by thousands of retailers, therefore the route of exposure to the chemical in this instance could be easily rectified, the EWG says.

“Our point is that 60 per cent of the receipts had no BPA or very insignificant traces. This is one exposure that’s easily fixed. Retailers can easily make the transition to BPA-free paper,” Anila Jacob, a senior scientist at EWG told the Toronto Star.

BPA is currently found in many plastic water bottles and used in the lining of soda, food, and baby-formula cans. Research has confirmed that the chemical can leach from the containers into the food or liquid within.

The EWG study found that the total mass of BPA on a paper receipt is 250 to 1,000 times greater than the amount typically entering food from BPA laced containers. The group states that BPA contamination of food should remain the priority, but that this latest information is also highly disturbing.

Although the FDA and the EPA, citing just two chemical-industry studies, still officially consider the synthetic estrogen-like chemical to be safe, hundreds of independent studies, which the feds have ignored, have linked BPA to genital abnormalities, early puberty, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and fertility problems.

I believe you would need a lot more to get inside you to cause a problem even if this is true

the stuff gets into the ambient air as well-when the heat is applied to the BPA(hormone laden paper) it is also inhaledby many, not just females, but many men already struggling under an estrogen rich environment


Viagra

is but a symptom of a worsening problem


This crap is sterilizing many young people-at the rate the wicked nanny is marching soon all of mankind could easily be extinct-

sterility is increasing RAPIDLY for many

in vaccines, in the GMO/GE frankenfoods...in medicines, in the air, in the water as fluoride sterilizes as well...

I hope the young folks research as much as they can now-to meet the truth BRAVELY

They will need courage
