There has been a period of "Public Science Library Journal" online journal published by Zui New Medical Research pointed out that printing roll paper and touching the cash register receipt paper may increase the risk of the body absorbing the dangerous substance "bisphenol A".
According to Taiwan’s “Central News Agency”, the Journal of the Public Library of Science published a medical report published by the research team led by Taylor, an associate professor of the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Missouri. The receipt of the restaurant’s cash register usually uses thermal paper, which causes the hands to be exposed to “bisphenol. A" is easy to contaminate food.
Taylor pointed out that because thermal paper bisphenol A is an endocrine disruptor, the human body faces considerable health risks.
According to the report, the researchers found that bisphenol A in thermal paper can be quickly absorbed into the human blood, leading to an increase in cases such as diabetes and obesity.
The results also found that the use of general skin care products will increase the rate at which bisphenol A is absorbed by the skin.
According to Taylor, bisphenol A is commonly found in daily necessities, and up to 90% of US people's urine tests will detect this substance.
Although some manufacturers have replaced bisphenol A with "bisphenol S", Taylor pointed out that bisphenol S also mimics human hormones, which also poses a potential threat to human health and exists in the natural environment for a long time, so as long as it is a thermal paper The receipts should be minimized.
