Look, its quite simple - Nitrox isn't any more or less dangerous than air, if you are properly trained and not stupid.
Breathing EAN32 will not make you less stupid. If you ignore what science we do know about the physiological effects of the differing gasses on your body - you are taking an increased risk above those who do pay attention.
If your worry is deco debt, you will have less debt on nitrox than on air. If your worry is oxygen toxicity - you're taking a larger risk with nixtrox. If you plan your dive and dive your plan, you'll know which gas to use when.
Don't use a screwdriver to hammer a nail, dude.
