Recycled paper for food packaging determined dangerous in Germany

Last night I read at the German news site Stern Ölpest im Karton — an article about carcinogens and toxins in cardboard packaging from recycled paper.  MOSH (“mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons”) and MOAH (“mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons”) are the culprits.

I searched the web and only found this almost one year old page:
3/23/10:  Is mineral oil from recycled paper a threat to food safety?
The Germans have now answered with a very clear YES.
Animal testing resulted in liver inflammation and lymph node damage. They established maximums of .01 milligrams of Mosh per kilogram of body weight.
A Swiss analysis documented 3 mg per 100 grams (3.5 oz) of rice and 8 mg in 100 grams of couscous.
Rice, flour and cornflakes are especially likely to be contaminated due to their large surface area.
I have no idea whether this is a problem in America as I found no mention of any studies.  We do buy whole wheat pasta in cardboard packaging.
The Germans recommend packaging the food in plastic, which comes with its own hazards. Not only is it NOT entirely impermeable, but bacteria tend to multiply faster in plastic.
Just can't win …
The German long term solution is to use different ink, utilizing plant-based oils.

Our borage is doing great – hope it won't freeze

All About Borage

I just read this article and had no idea what we missed last year when our borage froze before it flowered:

Beautiful. Traditional. Functional. Therapeutic. What am I talking about you say? Why borage of course!

Borage is a wonderful plant to have around the garden. Borage (Borago officinalis), also known as starflower, bee bush, bee bread, and bugloss, is a medicinal herb with edible leaves and flowers. In my garden, borage and sunflowers share the honor of being bee hot-spots.

Check out the article and great pictures, as well as the comments and warning that it's related to comfrey and should be consumed with caution.
I really hope our seedlings won't freeze in the greenhouse tonight, what a cold winter, down to 25 degrees already and it's not even 8 pm yet.  Last night we went to 17 degrees.
