Vitamin D and Calcium: A Systematic Review of Health Outcomes (Update). PB2015102321

The purpose of this report is to systematically summarize the evidence on the relationship between vitamin D alone or in combination with calcium on selected health outcomes included in the earlier review: primarily those related to bone health, cardiovascular health, cancer, immune function, pregnancy, all-cause mortality, and vitamin D status; and to identify the vitamin D assay methods and procedures used for the interventional studies that aimed to assess the effect of vitamin D administration on serum 25(OH)D concentrations, and to stratify key outcomes by methods used to assay serum 25(OH)D concentrations.

Solar and Space Physics: A Science for a Technological Society. An Overview. PB2015100255

In 2010, NASA and the National Science Foundation asked the National Research Council to assemble a committee of experts (the decadal survey committee) to develop an integrated national strategy that would guide agency investments in solar and space physics (or heliophysics in the terminology used by NASA) for the years 2013-2022. That strategy, the result of nearly 2 years of effort by the survey committee, which worked with more than 100 scientists and engineers on eight supporting study panels, is presented in the 2013 publication, Solar and Space Physics: A Science for a Technological Society. This booklet, designed to be accessible to a broader audience of policymakers and the interested public, summarizes the content of that report but does not replace, nor should it be construed, as a substitute for the findings and recommendations of the actual report.
