Surgically removing gallbladders has become big business for surgeons. There are around 750,000 surgeries for removing gall bladders in the USA each year. It’s estimated that 10 to 15 percent are emergency removals that are almost life or death necessities. The other 85 to 90 percent, are elective. Those who complain about pains under the right side of the rib cage or are experiencing digestion and/or elimination issues can be diagnosed with gallstones after further examination. The diagnosis explains the pains and digestive issues, but mainstream medicine usually has one solution: have them surgically removed in order to no longer have gallstones or other gallbladder issues. The medical advice given to those who undergo operations to have gallbladders removed is that the gallbladder is not a necessary organ. They say it’s not needed and it’s causing you problems so why not cut it out? The gallbladder is not a bad tooth. Its contribution to digestion and ultimately to homeostatic metabolism is actually very significant.
