The hidden cost of receipts: How BPA and BPS find their way into our bodies
How hormone disrupting BPA and BPS find their way into our bodies
Every day, Canadians are exposed to BPA, a toxic chemical linked to prostate and breast cancer, simply by touching receipts. Even when steps are taken by governments and industry to eliminate it, nearly identical chemicals such as BPS have replaced it.
That’s why we conducted an experiment to find out how BPA and BPS levels in our body change after handling receipts like a cashier. The results were shocking!
Nine out of 10 Canadians have BPA in their bodies according to Health Canada. Yet, the Canadian government has failed to take regulatory action to protect people from BPA and its replacements in receipts.
Tell Canada to ban BPA and BPS in receipts immediately.
