As with most cause and effect relationships, it is never one causative factor.

But yes, I do believe higher tunings are a strong component. After all the human voice is not flexible.
The passaggio is in a fixed place, so that indicates some adjustments are not possible.

But there is also rushing singers to start their careers because they have a certain look rather than a full preparation.

Then they get duped into singing the wrong rep. So a lot of slipshod stuff is going on.

Because there is this half assed culture around show biz and record labels choosing the next big thing, 
there are plenty of people falling under the bus. It is cultural.

And just as there are not many managers who carefully groom singers, there are not so many good teachers to take them in hand.
