BPA-free cash register tape soon to be available

Recent studies point to cash register receipts as containing BPA

A personal concern of mine of late has been the news of the prevalent consumer exposure to BPA and what if anything is being done to fix the problem.

BPA or bisphenol A is a chemical that’s found in an amazingly wide range of products and is linked to all sorts of health risks – including breast cancer, prostate cancer, genital abnormalities in male newborns, obesity, diabetes and even ADHD. Recent research has shown that cash register receipts may be the ultimate offender for BPA exposure.
