One of the students then asked: Is carbonless copy paper dangerous? Is carbonless paper toxic? Both are good questions.

“In conclusion, although the weight of the evidence indicates that exposure to CCP in the past has resulted in adverse health effects; it is uncertain whether current formulations of CCP represent a significant risk to exposed workers. Only a few cases of systemic reactions and allergic contact dermatitis have been reported in the United States or in Europe, which suggests that the risk of these serious outcomes is extremely low given the large number of people who have been exposed to CCP over a period of many years.” It further stated: “This conclusion is based on the finding that three such cases have been reported in the peer-reviewed medical literature. No cases have been reported in the last 7 years, and thus there is no evidence that current exposures to CCP present a
risk for this health outcome.” So while carbonless paper may have a slight odor, it is perfectly safe to use! This entry was posted on 15 April, 2014 09:00 and filed under Carbonless Papers . This article was trackbacked 3 times.
