There has been research in this. The number of times you can fold anything depends on it's dimensions.

For example, a sheet of newspaper one foot wide and 500 feet long could be folded far more than 7 times. (And if you think such a thing is unrealistic, consider that paper is easily available in large continuous rolls for industrial use.)
