In this 2015 report, the authors analyse worldwide research on how diet, nutrition, physical activity affect the risk of developing gallbladder cancer.

The global scientific research on diet, weight, physical activity and the risk of gallbladder cancer was systematically gathered and analysed, and then the results were independently assessed by a panel of leading international scientists in order to draw conclusions about whether these factors increase or decrease the risk of developing the disease.

The authors conclude that there is strong evidence that being overweight or obese increases the risk of gallbladder cancer.
