According to an article in health.usnews.com, researchers have analyzed 156 pieces of paper money from 21 different countries all over the world and found out that all of the bills contained traces of BPA (potentially toxic chemical bisphenol). Paper money from Brazil, the Czech Republic and Australia had the highest BPA levels, while bills from Thailand, Vietnam including Philippines had the lowest levels. while U.S. banknotes had average levels based from the American Chemical Society.

Well germaphobes are sure in for a treat! Not surprisingly, since the Philippine’s New generation banknotes is printed with Bioguard technology by Arjowiggins. Bioguard produces banknotes that are treated to prevent bacteria from multiplying. The anti-bacterial property has been tested to resist washing and will last throughout the lifetime of the banknote. Hmm.. Better option clean those dirty hands huh? nahhh…
