It seems like we constantly hear about things that aren’t good for us. Now a new study by an environmental nonprofit out of Michigan called The Ecology Center, says STORE RECEIPTS could be making you sick.
They tested a bunch of receipts at grocery stores, restaurants, and major retail chains, and they found that because of the thermal printers the stores use, 93% of their receipts tested positive for the chemicals that have been linked to negative effects on your hormones and your metabolism and they've even been linked to things like infertility and autism.
So, they say try and NOT to handle receipts . . . but if you do, wash your hands before you eat. And if you work in a store where you're touching receipts all day long, think about wearing gloves.
