BACKGROUND Gallstone disease is a major source of morbidity in the developed countries. Nuts are rich in several compounds that may protect against gallstone disease. OBJECTIVE The association between nut intake and cholecystectomy was examined in a large cohort of women. DESIGN We prospectively studied nut (peanuts, other nuts, and peanut butter) consumption in relation to the risk of cholecystectomy in a cohort of 80,718 women from the Nurses' Health Study who were 30-55 y old in 1980 and…

Diet and Risk of Cholecystectomy: A Prospective Study Based on the French E3N Cohort
TLDR
Adherence to a diet rich in fruit, vegetables, legumes, legume, and olive oil was associated with a reduction in cholecystectomy risk in French women.
Association of nut consumption with total and cause-specific mortality.
TLDR
In two large, independent cohorts of nurses and other health professionals, the frequency of nut consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality, independently of other predictors of death.
Vegetarian diet as a risk factor for symptomatic gallstone disease
TLDR
There is a highly significant association of increased BMI with risk of symptomatic gallstone disease and after adjusting for BMI, there is a small but statistically significant positive association between vegetarian diet and symptomaticgallstone disease.

TLDR
Dietary models characterized by increased energy intake with highly refined sugars and sweet foods, high fructose intake, low fiber contents, high fat, consumption of fast food and low vitamin C intake increase the risk of gallstone formation, while high intake of monounsaturated fats and fiber exerts a protective role.

In this cohort of US men, coffee consumption may have helped to prevent symptomatic gallstone disease and all coffee brewing methods showed a decreased risk.
Dietary predictors of symptom-associated gallstones in middle-aged women.
TLDR
In 1980, 88,837 women aged 34-59 y completed a semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire and were followed for 4 y, and inverse associations were observed between intakes of vegetable fat and vegetable protein and the risk of reportedly symptomatic gallastones.

TLDR
Data support a strong association between obesity and symptomatic gallstones and suggest that even moderate overweight may increase the risk.

TLDR
Increasing age and body mass index and a maternal family history of gallstone disease were the most consistent associations (both at univariate and multivariate analysis and in both sexes) found in this study.
