On right vs. left - I looked back at the barbellspin list of injured athletes (up to 34 now, including one female). Eight of the reported injuries specify right side injury, five specify left side injury. Attributing this to the asymmetric DB snatch is a leap. I can't imagine a scenario where both pecs would be injured simultaneously on the ring dips.
