Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Implicated" as in "has been studied as a possible risk factor" as in "has been indicated by a number of individual studies" or as "has been confirmed by one or more epidemiological metastudies?"

There is something of a difference between "not proven to be safe" and "proven to be unsafe." The former is true for most industrial chemicals, thanks to the sad joke that is our health and environmental regulation of the chemical industry. The latter is true for a substantially smaller number of chemicals.
