Then can you point me to the references that explicitly make these two claims?

I consider myself fairly well read in the related literature. I cannot recall one peer-reviewed report that makes or substantiates these two claims.

Since you at least repeat the claims, I assume you have access to the specific body of evidence. Please pass them along specifically to save the rest of us some time.
