There was some major confusion regarding the death of actress Tanya Roberts, who was widely known for being a Charlie’s Angel and Bond Girl. Several media outlets initially reported that Roberts had died when in fact she was still alive. For example, according to this report, she was mistakenly reported dead after being hospitalized due to suffering from a fall at her home. Unfortunately, the 65-year-old actress did recently pass, and the cause of death may come as a shock to you as it did to me. She died of a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Your urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. These organs remove waste and excess water from your body, and urinary tract infections (UTIs) occur when bacteria enters the urinary tract. UTIs occurring in the bladder (bladder infection) usually are not serious if treated right away. However, if you are not proactive about taking care of them, bladder infections can spread to your kidneys. A kidney infection is serious and may be life threatening.
