These studies did not have any overlap in participants.
As both epidemiological studies included questions regarding demographic, lifestyle factors, and occupational exposures (as well as many other facto...

Puffy eyes, dark circles under your eyes and a dull complexion all give away your late night adventures. But, with a little extra care you can camouflage the imperfections.
