On December 4thmedia reported that New York was planning to ban the use of paper receipts to allow businesses to provide electronic receipts. Studies have said that paper receipts contain BPA, which may increase the risk of breast cancer, infertility, brain damage and other.
BpA, also known as BPA, is used in industrial lybs to synthesize materials such as polycarbonate (PC) and epoxy resin. BPA is everywhere, from mineral water bottles and medical devices to food packaging.
But BPA can also lead to endocrine disorders, threatening the health of fetuses and children. Obesity caused by cancer and metabolic disorders is also thought to be related. The EU believes that bottles containing BPA can induce premature maturization.
It is reported that from March 2, 2011, the production of the chemical bpa (BPA) of baby bottles is prohibited. In 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and straw cups. From next year, the EU will also ban the use of BPA on receipts.
A spokesman for the New York City Council says no one needs a one-foot-long receipt, and stopping paper receipts is not only good for health, it’s also a refusal to waste protecting the planet.
