Fruit and vegetable consumption and risk of cholecystectomy in women.

Cholecystectomy is less likely to occur in women adhering to diets dominated by fruits and vegetables.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether an association exists between the consumption of fruits and vegetables and the risk of requiring a cholecystectomy in women. Researchers collated and analyzed data on the fruit and vegetable consumption rate and cholecystectomy hazard ratio of 77,090 women between the ages of 37 to 64 years and who had no history of gall stones. The team of researchers observed a lower cholecystectomy risk among women in the highest quartile of fruit and vegetable consumption than in those in the lowest quartile. The results of this study indicate that eating plenty of fruits and vegetables may help protect women from requiring a cholecystectomy.
