>Cereal Boxes Could Cause Cancer

>According to the Daily Mail, the recycled cardboard used in some food packaging like cereal boxes often contain harmful mineral oils. The oils, which come from the ink from recycled newspapers used to make the packaging, can seep through to the food, even passing through protective plastic packaging. These oils can cause harmful health effects, including inflammation of the organs and cancer. Because of this risk, companies like Kellogg have announced plans to stop using recycled cardboard in their packaging.
