Abstract

Gall Bladder Cancer (GBC) is common in northeastern Indian states. Industrial pollutants, lifestyles, dietary habits, gallstones, socio-economic status etc. have been proposed, but, none of them explain the incidents of GBC.  With an objective to study the dietary pattern, nutritional status, lifestyle and non-dietary habits a closed-ended questionnaire was used to interview GBC patients taking treatment in Tata Memorial Hospital, India. More women than men had GBC with a male to female ratio of 1:3.6. One third, patients were from low socio-economic group. 33.32% patients were overweight. Dietary habits revealed a high risk associated with less consumption of vegetables and fruits. 68.9% patients were using mustard oil as a cooking medium. 76.5% patients had a past history of gallstones. Malnutrition, Low socio-economic status, decreased Micronutrients in the diet, use of adulterated mustard oil and consumption of fishes from contaminated water sources may be influencing the incidents of GBC.
