Air recirculation is mostly for well being of the occupants as well, since the actual safety is at a level of ventilation far below (just as with deflection).
Not true--at least not here. Plenty of cases as I mentioned where mold intrusion from moisture accumulation has caused serious ongoing health issues. And carbon monoxide accumulation from appliance backdrafting kills people. I've been involved in several cases of this sort and I have a colleague who makes a pretty good living dealing with moisture and air quality issues in existing homes. Both of these are the reason I hear civil and structural engineer buddies as well as misuse of engineered materials tell me flat out they wouldn't buy a house that was less than 20 years old.
