Can Witholding Pee Cause Physical Problems?

Below is a link to a great article from the Harvard Medical School Health Publications about withholding urine. 

A summary of key points in the article:

1.  NO, your bladder cannot "burst" if you hold your pee too long.  (Well, there are some strange and uncommon reasons it COULD...but they are rare.)

2.  YES, it is slightly possible that CHRONIC withholding may cause more frequent urinary tract infections. (UTIs.) 

Below is the link to the full text of the article.  It's a good read!

I inclination not concur on it. I assume warm-hearted post. Specially the title attracted me to review the sound story.
