Are Seresto Collars Safe?

So there’s a debate about Seresto collars and if they are safe. I didn’t know much about this flea tick collar so I looked up the ingredients.
“The active ingredients are imidacloprid (10%) and flumethrin (4.5%). Imidacloprid, which affects the central nervous system of fleas, is a member of the neonicotinoid class of insecticides; flumethrin, which repels and kills ticks, is in the pyrethroid class.”
Logically speaking, I have a difficult time accepting that an insecticide running through the blood stream of any animal for 30 days straight and then repeated is 100% safe. I just don’t see how it’s possible, but we have to weigh the pros and cons.
Bayer paid out trillions of dollars for Roundup causing cancer to gardeners etc. They still sell it. That tells me that just because a dog doesn’t show a reaction doesn’t mean it’s safe.
I really don’t believe Gods creatures can handle all the environmental, societal practices that we subject them to. I don’t believe their immune systems are designed to handle any of it. When I was a kid, I never knew a dog with a seizure. Today every other person has a dog with a seizure. What’s changed?
This article explains a lot and discusses alternatives too.
