Not to appear silly, but whether pulverized or shredded by the time it is
composted or vermicomposted the same chemical processes would occur.

I agree that if they are concerned, they shouldn't use it on food crops.

This question comes up in Master Compost lecture from homeowners and the
usual response is to not use paper that has too much ink, e.g., color
photo newsprint or colored paper. And to avoid using it on food crops.
