    Default Cereal box health warning

    Breakfast cereal manufacturers are to stop using recycled cardboard in packaging after a study indicated that current boxes could pose a cancer risk.

    Yeah, but on the other hand it helps to save the environment, assuming toxic cereal munchers aren't planted under trees obviously.

    Don't they test these things before, dare I say it, they are given the green light?

    Can't be bothered to read it, but all the cereal I've ever bought is in a waxy plastic/paper bag inside the box, not in the box itself.

    Mineral oils leach through the plastic.

    They can cause internal organ inflammation and even cancer. It's from the ink used in the news print I think.

    The alert was sparked when researchers in Switzerland found that mineral oils in printing ink from recycled newspapers used in cardboard can get into foods - even passing through protective inner plastic bags.
    Pardon my ignorance, but isn't that an even stronger alert not to read newspapers? At least without the Name Of The Rose solution.

    Researchers found toxic chemicals from recycled newspapers had contaminated food sold in many cardboard cartons.

    So, in other words, the Daily Mail causes cancer
