Yes. But there's a difference between saying "the ceviche is awesome,
you should try it" and saying "you really should lose some weight."
When you're telling people to eat their broccoli, nobody wants to hear
the word "should." It's a word best avoided.

Therefore, for this question to be meaningful, you must have doubt as to
whether Werner & Co. are capable of forming an opinion as to what they
consider to be "safe and sane." Because if there's no doubt, then why
ask it at all?
I do not share in your doubts.
