Gallbladder Good Health Day


Anyone know anything about gallbladders? Anyone? Bueller? That's okay, me neither. Until I learned today is Gallbladder Good Health Day! So I looked up some things about gallbladders that I'm sure you'd love to hear. For starters women are 3-4 times more likely to suffer gallbladder attacks than men. Ouch. What's a gallbladder look like anyways? Thanks for asking, anonymous blog reader who's suddenly very interested in gallbladders. It's about 4-5 inches big and they look like baby eggplants. Or so I'm told. It's located just under the rib cage and liver. The gallbladder is part of the digestive system and it also helps to keep your liver healthy. I'm told apples are particularly good, whereas fatty (fried or greasy) foods are bad for it.

Has anyone in your family had their gallbladder removed?

I have. In addition, most of my aunts and a cousin on my dad's side had them removed, and my grandfather on my mom's side had his removed.
