EPA Petitioned to Acknowledge Extensive Fluoride/Brain Risk Evidence

Groups Urge EPA to Ban Fluoridation Based on Risk to Brain

A coalition of environmental, medical and health groups have served the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a Petition, which includes over 2,500 pages of supporting scientific documentation, calling on the Agency to ban the addition of fluoridation chemicals to public water supplies due to the risks these chemicals pose to the brain, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

The Petition explains that “the amount of fluoride now regularly consumed by millions of Americans in fluoridated areas exceeds the doses repeatedly linked to IQ loss and other neurotoxic effects.”  Signers to the Petition include FAN, Food & Water Watch, Organic Consumers Association, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and Moms Against Fluoridation.

“If EPA applies its own risk assessment guidelines to fluoridation, we believe it will agree that fluoridation poses an unacceptably high risk to the brain,” says attorney Michael Connett, FAN legal adviser.

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) authorizes EPA to prohibit the “particular use” of a chemical that presents an unreasonable risk to the general public or susceptible subpopulations. TSCA gives EPA the authority to prohibit drinking water additives.

Subpopulations especially vulnerable to fluoride’s neurotoxic effects include infants, the elderly, kidney patients, and the nutrient deficient (e.g. iodine and calcium). Evidence also suggests that African-Americans may suffer disproportionate harm as well.

EPA scientists characterize chemicals with human evidence of neurotoxicity as “gold standard” chemicals warranting assessment priority.  Not only is there human research on fluoride neurotoxicity, it is so extensive that fluoride is classified alongside lead, mercury and PCBs as one of only 12 chemicals “known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in human beings.” (Lancet Neurology)

At EPA’s request, the National Research Council (NRC) reviewed fluoride toxicology research and concluded in 2006, “It is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.”

Since NRC’s review, 196 fluoride/brain studies have been published, including 61 human studies.

Contrary to claims that only high doses of fluoride are linked to brain damage, studies of fluoride-exposed human populations consistently find neurotoxic effects at water fluoride levels well below the EPA’s “safe” level (4 mg/L).

One recent study from China found that children ingesting just 1.4 milligrams of fluoride each day suffered a 5-point loss in IQ. Some children living in fluoridated areas in the United States ingest doses comparable to this level.

Research also shows that some Americans have fluoride levels in their urine and blood that equal or exceed the levels linked to cognitive deficits.

“As with lead, fluoride is a neurotoxic and an endocrine disrupting substance that has no place in our drinking water," Connett states. “The EPA should follow Europe’s lead and end fluoridation.”

EPA has 90 days to respond to the Petition.

Sector Snapshot; Luxury Real Estate Market with Insight from Joyce Rey, the ‘Billionaire’s Broker’

Sector Snapshot; Luxury Real Estate Market with Insight from Joyce Rey, the Billionaire’s Broker’

Point Roberts, WA, – November 2, 2016 – Investorideas.com, a global news source and investor resource issues a sector snapshot for the luxury real estate market with expertise from realtor Joyce Rey who has built a worldwide reputation branding her as the ‘Billionaire’s Broker’. 

Q:  Investorideas.com
Joyce can you tell us based on what you are seeing, what the key factors are in selling luxury real estate properties today and how much of an influence international buyers are?
A: Our current luxury market is very strong on the entire West side of LA.  The two key factors in selling luxury real estate today are the importance of knowledge of available properties (as so many of them are not publicly listed) and tracking confidential comparable sales information. Another important factor is the luxury buyers’ need for privacy and discretion on the part of their agent. International buyers have a significant impact on our marketplace.  They do constitute a minority each year but their percentage does increase in the higher price ranges. The three record breaking sales this year in the $100M price range were all American buyers.

Q:  Investorideas.com
How much of a factor does location and building prestige play in this segment and what else can get someone to push the button and buy a home over $10 Million?
A: The old adage – location, location, location - is always proven true as it is normally a buyer’s #1 consideration. Naturally prestige plays into the choice of location.  The other factors that are extremely important to luxury buyers are city-ocean views, certain style choices and newer construction.  Buying a home that is available with beautiful furnishings is also very attractive as it offers an instant lifestyle.

Q:  Investorideas.com
It was just announced a few days ago that Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, a global leader in luxury home sales, has enriched its Coldwell Banker Previews International® luxury program by elevating its Previews® agent certification program, expanding global marketing offerings and cultivating growth in its digital and print content. What does this tell you about the optimism for the sector?
A: Coldwell Banker is always on the cutting edge in emphasizing the luxury market worldwide with a network of 84,000 sales agents worldwide. I have been proud to head the Estates Division for Coldwell Banker for nearly 20 years in the Beverly Hills region and have personally been responsible for many record breaking transactions.

Q:  Investorideas.com
Narrowing in on the market in California and in particular Beverly Hills, what are you seeing?
A: Beverly Hills seems to lead the market with foreign sales as the city is known internationally both for its prestige, fine public schools, excellent police force and extraordinary shopping.  The inventory in the Beverly Hills community is extremely limited. The demand is great; therefore, prices are increasing.

Q:  Investorideas.com
Can you tell us about some of your current listings and what sets them apart for a distinctive buyer looking in this price range?
A: One of my favorite listings is an acre and a half beautifully placed at the top of Benedict Canyon with stunning views of Beverly Hills and Bel Air. Just completed, this amazing European villa captures the essence of old world charm but with every modern convenience. Beautifully designed with high ceilings, inlaid parquet floors, fabulous screening room, infinity edge pool and sensational master suite, this property epitomizes the ultimate indoor-outdoor California lifestyle combining both privacy and elegance just a short distance from Rodeo Drive. My newest listings and one of my most unusual ones is a 4.5-acre property that includes a 1.8-acre parcel with a stable under construction. The house itself leads up to the Will Rogers State Park and polo field.  At the end of a private road, the property has exceptional grounds. The construction was just finished last year and it has a unique style and sophistication with two separate guest houses. Also, I have listed a very glamourous architectural retreat overlooking the Sunset Strip adjacent to Beverly Hills with walls of glass and an exquisite all glass stair case.  I have also listed the exceptional Harry Warner estate filled with Hollywood history where Marilyn Monroe once stayed in the guest house.  You might have recently seen this property on the People vs. OJ Emmy-award winning television series as it was used as OJ’s house. It has a fabulous 35mm screening room, championship lighted tennis court, beautiful ground and spacious bedroom suites.  The property is ideal for entertaining and full of authentic charm with hand carved oak detailing.

Q:  Investorideas.com
Can you give us insight over the past ten years, surviving the recession and what you think the future holds for this sector?
A: The recession hit us with a jolt in the October/November months of 2008.  I lost over $35M in escrows.  Many buyers walked away from substantial deposits rather than close escrow.  Interestingly enough, looking back 2009 and 2010 were incredible buying opportunities, because most buyers were apprehensive about the market and prices had dropped significantly.  It’s always smart to buy when other people aren’t.  It also takes courage!  Prices have steadily increased since that time, however, the price per square foot in luxury properties in the Beverly Hills/Los Angeles neighborhoods is still far lower than any other major city in the world--even our American competitors.  So I anticipate a strong market in the year ahead.

Q:  Investorideas.com
In closing, if someone wants to become a realtor in this specialized sector, what does it take to be successful?
A: #2-The number one answer is hard work. It is much more difficult to get started in today’s market than when I began over 40 years ago.  Worldwide marketing is a necessary component and is very expensive.  Contracts are far more complicated and clients gravitate to agents with experience and good reputations with a large client base.  It’s important to start with an excellent firm and often helpful to associate with a well-known realtor that can assist you in a rather lengthy learning process. The luxury clientele is extremely demanding and expect a very responsive and knowledgeable realtor.
