Smoking is linked with so many negative health problems. Now it has been linked with bladder control problems. The link has not been established but smokers tend to have a higher degree of bladder control problems than non-smokers. To avoid bladder control and other health problems avoid smoking.

Obesity again has many negative health ramifications. There is the increased chance of heart disease and links to cancer. Obesity can also be a cause of bladder control problems. When one is obese their muscle tone suffers due to excess body fat. This of course includes the muscles that control urination. Weak bladder muscles are a direct cause of bladder control problems and incontinence. You can lose weight with yoga and the exercises will help strengthen your muscles.
