The bad news, some cup news and health questions

The sad news is a young girl died this week in Israel from TSS and another girl is still in very bad condition.
The cup news is an article was published in one of the big newspapers (Haaretz) describing alternatives to tampons such as menstrual cups, soft cups and another natural method called menstrual awareness.
The girl got TSS from forgetting to take out a tampon after 16 hours. I was wondering is there any evidence that a cup is any safer than a tampon. I read there were no reported cases of TSS but the number of users is also much smaller.
