An observational and insightful study which used a sample of 20000 individuals has actively found out that greater intake of red and processed meat is highly linked to a higher risk of heart disease and poor heart functioning. The functioning of the heart is already complex because it performs multiple functions at a same time. People who are associated with a greater intake of oily food have higher risk of developing a heart disease. Worse heart functioning can also happen due to the heavy intake of red and processed meat. The research on this is presented at ESC preventive cardiology 2021, which is an online scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Many previous studies show the links between greater consumption of red meat and an increased risk of heart attack or actively dying from heart disease. Death from heart disease is very much common in males as compared to women. It is said by author Dr. Zahra Raisi Estabragh of the Queen Mary University of London.

They saw that the relationship between meat consumption and imaging measures of heart health. They both are linked with each other and if the ratio or proportion of one product goes up, it causes severe harms. This may help us to understand the full mechanism underlying the previously observed connections with cardiovascular diseases. It is being advised by doctors and consultants that food intake is very much important for leading a healthy lifestyle and a proper study was performed regarding this.

The study has lots of participants which are from the U.K. Biobank and it included almost 19,408 active participants from which the dataset of health is extracted and collected. Three types of heart measures were analyzed. First, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) assessments of heart function are used in clinical practice such as volume of the ventricles and measures of the pumping function of the ventricles. Second, novel CMR radio mics used in research to extract detailed information from heart images such as shape and texture (which indicates the health of the heart muscle).
