Well, if it's on cash register receipts then it only stands to reason that it would get on the money.
Just wash your hands well, and often, and don't touch your face or mouth or children!

Read an article a while back that said that only 200 chemicals have been tested. The thermo paper is useless if you want to save the receipt if on a printer or something you will perhaps get their extended warranty for and be able to read it later. They know Bisphenol A is harmful, and I do not trust the test they reference. Ink is expensive and groceries would have to spend some of their fat mafia profits on it.
Just hope they do not gather up some more defenseless little creatures and test on them. They can use tissue that gives accurate results.
Genetic corn will decrease fertility so they do not have to resort to a known carcinogen.
