As one of the world’s highest production volume chemicals, Bisphenol-A is incredibly common in food and drinks packaging, as well as in other places you probably wouldn’t expect, like receipts.
A study in Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry found that of 13 thermal printing papers (the type often used for receipts) analyzed, 11 contained BPA.v Holding the paper for just 5 seconds was enough to transfer BPA onto a person’s skin, and the amount of BPA transferred increased by about 10 times if the fingers were wet or greasy.
