One of the worst things we can do for our bladder health over time is holding in urine when our brain is telling our bodies that we’ve got to go. Even though the bladder is an organ that deals with the urinary waste produced by our kidneys, it isn’t just some garbage pale to be ignored. Staying focused on keeping it healthy now can help you stave off a variety of painful, debilitating and even some life-threatening conditions down the road.
