Nowadays, it is starting to increase awareness of the potential dangers of thermal paper. Several studies have also been conducted to test this.
According to a literature, thermal paper contains BPA (bisphenol A) which, when in contact with the skin, can be absorbed and remain in the body for a long time. Besides thermal paper, BPA is also a chemical compound that is widely used in the plastics and resin industries. this is dangerous for health because it can disrupt the hormonal balance. Furthermore, this impaired hormonal balance can also increase a person's risk of developing cancer, including breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
But in fact, conclusions about the various studies that examine this to date are still a lot of debate. In many countries, including Europe and America, the use of thermal paper is still permitted. The reason, the potential content of BPA in thermal paper is relatively small. And some studies say that BPA exposure of no more than 4 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day is not dangerous.
Of course, the security of using this thermal paper can vary depending on the type of paper, how often you are exposed to this paper, and how your general health is. Therefore, it is safer if you first check your health condition at the doctor before deciding to use this paper.
Hope this helps ...
