Bisphenol A

bisphenol-a

Bisphenol A is a compound used to manufacture many types of plastic, including bottles, the lining of canned food, household electronics etc. which are known to contain endocrine disrupting properties which can cause hormones to misfire and cause a myriad of diseases processes including diabetes, brain disorders, and cancers. It is suspected that Bisphenol A is the primary cause of early onset puberty in adolescents. Bisphenol A was initially designed to be a hormonal therapy for women, specifically as birth control as it has estrogen analogs, being that it is classified as a “xenoestrogen”. Because it was not quite powerful enough to be used in medicine, it was shelved until scientists figured out that Bisphenol A could make plastics more firm. 93% of Americans test positive for Bisphenol A within their bodies. Bisphenol A is found in thermal paper, which is used to create receipts for customers after the point of purchase. It is been scientifically studied and verified that Bisphenol A is absorbed rapidly by the skin in massive quantities after touching thermal paper, and that it does absorb into the various organ systems of the body
