This an interesting topic, and I encourage all to share their thoughts.

Safe is not an absolute parameter, it can only be understood by comparing to something else. Are cars inherently safe? absolutely not, yet millions drive or ride them daily without any concern.

Accordingly, being safe inherently or not is irrelevant to the public, and the media. This is another attempt, a failed one in my opinion, to impress the media and the public by using highly vague technical terms.
