COMMENT: As Alex Jones pointed out during his July 6 broadcast, this startling reminder of Bisphenol-A’s widespread use in many products of our culture– causing a rise in sterility and other negative effects (which has been known for decades)– has been contained in the mainstream media through “cutesy” and “clever” headlines such as that put forward by the Daily Mail: “Now men have the perfect excuse to avoid shopping… it could make them impotent”. Compare that approach with the straight-news approach of News 680 or other outlets.
Chemicals found on receipts possible danger to male hormone levels
July 6, 2010
A new study released in the London Telegraph suggests there are enough chemicals on some cash register receipts to suppress male hormones within the body.
Bisphenol A is used to make ink visible on heat-sensitive paper, and it is ingested when men handle the paper, and then touch their mouths or food.
Urologist professor Frank Sommer said that in the long term, the habit could lead to less sex drive and reduced potency.

Finally men have a perfect excuse to avoid shopping… it could make them impotent.
Researchers have made the startling discovery that a gender bending chemical compound is present on some till receipts.
And the levels of hazardous substance Bisphenol A (BPA) can be high enough to suppress male hormones in the body.
The compound, used to make ink visible on thermally sensitive paper, is ingested by men when they handle the receipts and then touch their mouths or handle food.
