ACSH s Dr. Gilbert Ross was on CBS New York on Friday, talking about how ridiculous a new Suffolk County law is that requires business owners to use BPA-free thermal receipts.

There is no evidence that BPA in consumer products of any type, including cash register receipts, are harmful to the health of anybody, Ross said. It s not making anything safer for anybody. It s a waste of energy, time and financial resources.
