The Daily Mail Gives You Cancer: The Dangers Of Recycled Newspaper

by | 8th, March 2011

RECYCLED cardboard can kill you. Yep, new stuff is better than reused stuff. Who knew? The BBC reports that mineral oils from recycled newspapers have been found in paper and card.

But not everyone is in agreement as to how bad it is:

Cereal firm Jordans has stopped using recycled cardboard… Kellogg’s and Weetabix said they were taking steps to reduce the amount of mineral oil in their packaging.

Mineral oils are not good for you:

Exposure to mineral oils has been linked to inflammation of internal organs and cancer.

Yep, it might well be that the Daily Mail gives you cancer. What are the odds, eh…
