Calling all Target shoppers out there! Did you actually remember to buy that thing you went for? Yeah, me neither. Oh well! We'll be back. But next time you go back, I've got a little task for you. Pay attention when you are checking out. Not to the items you bought, or the chapstick in the checkout lane, but to what happens at the end of your transaction. Chances are the cashier hands you a printed receipt and says have a nice day. While this seems completely normal, taking that receipt could be negatively impacting your health. Typical receipt paper is coating in BPA powder which helps make sure they can be printed quickly and not smear.
