There were some recent discoveries about the special paper that is used for the ATM, and it was absolutely shocking.
It has been discovered that people who held that kind of paper in their hands, can have dramatically increased Bisphenol A (BPA) levels in the urine.
Bisphenol A may cause some hormonal disorders, and it is also linked to problems with the brain development of little children.
This is a chemical compound which has been found in some fabrics, such as those that produce canned foods, hard plastic and even baby’s bottles.
The recently discovery was that it was also used for making the special paper for ATM.
The use of this kind of special paper is spread in numerous POS-machines in the markets, highways and some other places. Also, many of the people are still not aware for this issue.
It is still not known which is the critical level of this chemical compound. The most exposed are those people who work with this kind of paper and the consequences of it are still unknown.
