?poor diet: Gall stones are the result of poor diet in the first place and maybe that continues. Medical students are taught that gall stones represent " fair, fat and forty". It is very surprising to many that poor diet is responsible for poor health in millions and may be the single most important factor in the overall poor health in the U.S.
