(C)Some pple who consume neither dairy nor meat suffer 2 or more heart attacks over the course of a lifetime.

I think this is C

argument says that only 10% of people who don't consume meat or diry products get heart attack. To weaken it, you have to prove that avoiding meat and dairy WILL give you heart attack. Therefore C, satisfies the question.

I disagree with E. I think saying that 7% "regularly suffer heart attacks" doesn't mean the same as saying that 7% "suffer a heart attack". In fact, logically if 7% regularly suffer heart attacks, the percentage of people who suffer only one heart attack in their lifetime should be greater than 7% and probably greater than 10%. Therefore I think C should be the best answer and I do not understand why is it E. Could you please help me?

POE = process of elimination
My bad now I think answer is not E but C
Author wants us to believe that diet containing milk and meat is not good for heart and 10% people taking this diet suffer from heart problem
We need to counter this argument based on the fact
E, D ) will strengthen the argument
B ) changes the set so that cant be our answer
So C and A is remaining
C makes a counter attack by showing that heart problem can also come when not consuming milk and meat diet
