(Natural News) You might want to skip the receipt the next time you buy something. According to a recent study, over “90 percent of receipts contain chemicals linked to infertility, autism and type-2 diabetes.”
Dubbed the “gender-bending” chemical, Bisphenol A (BPA) and the “healthier alternative” called Bisphenol S (BPS) are used on 93 percent of receipts that customers receive in stores. Only a measly two percent don’t have a chemical coating.
BPS was designed as a substitute for BPA following “mounting concerns” that the plastic compound has a negative effect on human health. However, scientists now have reason to believe that BPS is another hormone disruptor. (Related: Toxic BPA Used in Two-Thirds of Food Packaging, Says New Report.)
BPA and BPS are used in countless products such as “plastic and metal food containers, to detergents, flame retardants, toys, and cosmetics.” BPA can be found in hard reusable bottles and food containers. Meanwhile, BPS is used in personal care products and baby bottles.
Due to concerns about health-related issues, BPA was replaced with BPS. But there is proof that the chemical can “disrupts babies’ development in the womb.” The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and The European Commission has prohibited the use of the chemical by 2020.
BPA and BPS are both used on receipts so that the writing is darker and easier to read even without using ink.
The findings revealed that people who often handle receipts, such as cashiers and waitstaff, are vulnerable to the chemicals’ effects. BPA reacts with estrogen and thyroid hormone receptors. It is often associated with “infertility, autism, ADHD, obesity, type-2 diabetes, premature births, and early onset of puberty.”
Earlier studies on the toxic chemicals have determined that both cashiers and waiting staff will handle around 30 receipts hourly. Once their shift is done, these workers “workers have significantly higher BPA and BPS levels in their blood and urine compared to the average person.”
Previous studies suggest that BPS can be found in the urine of 81 percent of people who live in the U.S. and that 90 percent can be traced to receipts.
The results of earlier studies also proved that brief physical contact with receipts leads to the absorption of BPA or BPS into the body. This can still go up by at least 10 times if an individual has moist or oily fingers or had used lotion or hand sanitizer before touching the receipt….

(Natural News) Many in the natural health community are already aware of the recent death threat that vaccine truth advocate Dr. Suzanne Humphries received from an anonymous assailant. But what you may not realize is that Dr. Humphries was previously targeted for murder when someone maliciously severed the brake lines on her vehicle.
During a recent interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, Dr. Humphries bore it all about her history working in medicine; the criticism and animosity she’s faced over the years for departing from its dogma; and more recently the vulgar threat she received on her life via anonymous email. Dr. Humphries also told of how her work in exposing vaccine truth hasn’t exactly done her any favors in terms of her personal safety.
It was right around the time when Dr. Humphries began to notice, and talk about, the increasing number of kidney conditions she was observing in conjunction with influenza vaccination that she quickly landed in the crosshairs of pro-vaccine cultists. She was falsely accused of being an “anti-vaxxer,” a categorical branding that represents a type of medical scarlet letter, and one that draws plenty of ire and hate from the more extremist “jabbers” who believe that people who don’t vaccinate put all of society at risk.
If a person really believes this unsubstantiated dogma, it’s easy to see how angered they might become at people like Dr. Humphries who are spreading a different narrative. To pro-vaccination cultists like the anonymous assailant who most recently threatened Dr. Humphries’s life, warning people about the dangers of vaccines basically makes one an infidel who must be taken out for the protection of the “herd.”
“The brake lines to my Honda CR-V were clamped, and there was something wrong with how the car was functioning,” Dr. Humphries revealed for the first time, recalling an incident that’s she never gone public with that occurred back around 2010. “It was immediately taken into the service station, and the service station attendant was practically in tears. He said, ‘This was a malicious act.’”
Dr. Humphries says she’s also been targeted with a crossbow arrow on her lawn, aggressor who turned gas line on inside her home
It’s only because they LOVE us so much that they get angry at any hindrance to their ability to inject HEALING substances into other people’s bodies.
