Does BPA exposure cause heart disease?

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.

  1. “Dr.” Mercola is not a credible source! There are enough sound scientific reports about BPA out there. DES daughters have been victims of enough badly reported science, let’s not pass misinformation on to the next generation.

    1. This article has seven references (links) and received 47 comments. Perhaps you could be a bit more specific on what you believe is misleading Jennifer
