A study released Tuesday by the Washington Toxics Coalition found "significant levels" of the chemical BPA on dollar bills and retail receipts.
Bisphenol-A, or BPA, has been linked to cancer, diabetes, infertility, and obesity, said Erika Schreder, a staff scientist with the Seattle-based group.
Thermal receipt printers, the type used by many retail stores, use BPA to develop the ink. From these receipts, the study found, the chemical can transfer easily to skin and other objects, including the cash in your wallet.
