BPA in recycled toilet paper? Geez, and I thought it was a good idea…

I just ran across this article with the unpleasant news that a lot of cash register receipts contain the toxic chemical BPA, and they then get recycled to become toilet paper…which, aside from its obvious skin contact issues, also gets flushed and leaches the chemical into the groundwater…

Sigh.  Seems like we just can’t win.
