Are Your Recycled Cereal Boxes Toxic?


Not good.

A new study showed that food stored in packaging made from recycled cardboard may have some mineral oils that leeched from the cardboard.  Mineral oils have been shown to be toxic on rats and could cause in humans:

  • chronic inflammation of various internal organs
  • cancer.

In some foods, the amount of mineral oils found was over 10 times the acceptable intake limit set.
