hi sara ;
Gall-stones is not a perfectly hereditary disease.There are many other factors responsible like diet;mainly heavy diet containing meat;the area where in people come from eg.-people from some part of Uttar -Pradesh do suffer from gall-stones.It is more related to the bile secreted ;the consistency differs from person to person.
thanks
