High cholesterol in the bile causes 80 percent of gallstones, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Gallstones cause cholecystitis or inflammation of the gallbladder, which can result in severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. In order to digest fat, the liver makes bile, which is subsequently stored in the gallbladder. When bile hardens, gallstones are formed. Eating a proper diet can keep the gallbladder healthy and prevent gallbladder attacks. Healthy Fats While high doses of saturated fats can increase circulating cholesterol and the risk of gallstones, cutting fat completely from your diet is unnecessary. Choosing healthy fats can keep the body healthy and the gallbladder happy. Try to cut back on meats that are high in saturated fats such as red meat and organ meats. Eating salmon or other meat that is high in omega-3 fatty acids can not only keep your gallbladder healthy but decrease your cholesterol as well. Remember, some fat in the diet is necessary to help control cravings and to maintain your brain power and healthy skin. Fruits and Vegetables In a 2006 "American Journal of Medicine," article, researchers from the University of Kentucky Medical Center reported that after examining the diets of 77,000 women, they found that women who had higher intakes of fruits and vegetables were less likely to have gallbladder attacks and subsequent removal of their gallbladders. Green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits and cruciferous vegetables were associated with lower risk of cholecystectomy or gallbladder removal. Whole Grains Whole grain foods have been shown to lower the risk of many chronic diseases, according to the Whole Grains Council. Eating foods such as whole wheat pasta, whole grain breads, quinoa and oats can reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol. Lowering blood cholesterol reduces the risk of gallbladder stones. Eat 2 to 3 servings of whole grains daily.

Here’s how the lymphatic system works to protect us from becoming sick: We come into contact with various types of microbes, bacteria and toxins every day that enter our bodies and make their way into the lymphatic fluid. Eventually, the fluid containing these organisms can get trapped inside lymph nodes, which is where the immune system “attacks” any perceived threats by attempting to destroy them with white blood cells. Inside the lymph nodes (which look like small, bean-shaped structures), bacteria are filtered out and white blood cells are produced, used up as part of our defensive mechanism, and then replenished. Another important role of the lymphatic system is keeping bodily fluids in balance. When the lymphatic system works properly, we don’t experience any painful swelling or abnormal water retention. Our blood vessels and lymphatic vessels seep fluid into and out of surrounding tissue so the fluid can be drained. Extra fluid is eliminated from the body, which stops tissue from swelling or puffing up — however, when we are stick or injured, fluids build up in the damaged area, which is why throbbing and pain occur. You’ve probably experienced swollen lymph nodes at some point when you’ve been sick, especially the ones located near the throat or genitals that can be triggered by common infections (urinary tract infections, strep throat, colds or sore throats, etc.). Lymph nodes are found around the body, some of the most prominent locations being the throat, groin, armpits, chest and abdomen. Lymph nodes are located close to major arteries since the lymphatic system connects to the blood flow to keep the blood clean. Within the lymph nodes is where the immune cells are created, which are critical for fighting infections and healing wounds.

The prostate often enlarges as men get older, but now a day due to modern lifestyle major part of the male population is suffering from prostate problems. These prostate problems not only disturb the functional life of a person but also disturb the personal life. Anatomically prostate gland is compromised of zones and lobes. The main action of the prostate gland is in the sexual sphere, where it produces PSA which is an essential protein which helps to keep the semen in its liquid state. This PSA when gets increased can lead to cancer or any prostate problem. Major risk factors associated with prostate problems are related to old age (above 45), more in person with a family history of cancer. Diet factors also play a major role as long-term medication, smoking, alcohol, night working and even increased intake of tea and coffee leads to prostate problems.

The epithelial cells in the prostate gland produce a protein called PSA (prostate-specific antigen). The PSA helps keep the semen in its liquid state. Some of the PSA escapes into the bloodstream. We can measure a man's PSA levels by checking his blood. If a man's l
