    Barring really bad writers, it shouldn't. What affects one affects the other. And before you bring up Terrigen Clouds, once upon a time writers remembered that Terrigen was hazardous to Inhumans, as well. It wasn't to be distributed to everyone for health reasons.

I agree with your larger point about the Inhumans needs and the humans needs going hand in hand. But I'm not sure if the last bit about terrigen being hazardous to Inhumans has ever been the case. I don't want to say that idea has NEVER been offered in the comics but if it was it was rare.

Terrigen was lethal to humans or turned them into monsters resembling Triton (like what Dr. Hydro did to Betty Prentiss I think).

Usually the explanation we're given is that terrigen is not offered to the masses (the inhuman population) because the genetic council tries to limit the number of non-beneficial mutations or redundant mutations. Every mutation serves a purpose to enhance their society in some way.

Every Inhuman could potentially go through the process and get a power. But the process could just kill them or leave them hobbled or with a mutation that the creepy little council wants to get rid of. (ok so maybe it CAN be hazardous...but in my opinion they're going through a crucible with the terrigenesis treatment. They're not dying because the chemical is toxic but because the individual Inhuman was lacking in some way. There's some metaphysical mumbo jumbo in play)
