Remove symbolic links from output of find . -perm


Hello,
I want to know if there is a way to remove symbolic links from the output of the find . -perm -002 so i can see which actual files have write permission for anyone and check if its ok to be like that or not. So far i keep getting masses of output because the command is including symbolic links which as normal have 777 permissions so obviously i don't want to know about the perms of sym links, therefore if possible remove from the output, i wonder if the find commands "prune" option would help here but i'm not sure??

Cheers Regards
Mark
