Physical Activity and the Risk of Gallstone Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Engaging in physical activity regularly may knock down an individual's risk of suffering from gallstone disease.

This research work studied the impact of regular exercise on the likelihood of developing gallstone disease by means of a meta-analysis. Researchers reviewed data and evidence obtained from 16 studies. 

Researchers identified a protective association between high level of physical activity and reduced risk of gallstone disease. The findings of this study show that the odds of avoiding gallstone disease may be tilted in favor of individuals who exercise regularly.
