From chewing gum to holding back the pip: bad habits to be eliminated

Not urinating four to seven times a day (that is, at least every four to six hours) can indicate a lack of hydration, not to mention that several studies have confirmed that holding your pee too long can actually stretch the bladder, resulting in a condition known as “lazy bladder syndrome.” Urine comparable to a stream or a river – notes Dr. Fowler – consequently, when it is blocked, the flow stagnates, thus giving the opportunity for bacteria to proliferate in the bladder and maybe go up to the kidneys, while letting it flow minimizes the risk of infection.
