Around 13 percent of men admitted to having mild incontinence with just over 4.5 percent saying that they suffered from mild to severe incontinence.

On adjusting for age and other factors, the researchers found that those who consumed over 234mgs of caffeine every day, or less than two cups of coffee per day, were 72 percent more likely to suffer from incontinence.
