Dr. Hegsted argues that just as polo vaccine is given to every person to protect the few who might actually contract polio, mass dietary change is needed to protect the significant number who are susceptible to the life threatening effects of present eating habits.

1.just as polo vaccine is given to every person to protect the few who might actually contract polio

2.like polo vaccine, which is given to every person to protect the few who might contract polio

3.similar to polo vaccine which is given to every person in order to protect the few who might actually contract polio

4.while, to protect the few who might actually contract polio, polio vaccine is given to every person.

5.similar to the giving of polo vaccine to every person in order to protect the few who might contract polio actually

Guys, this SC was discussed before but the answer arrived at through the consensus, answer which I also feel is correct, is not the official answer.
I will be back with OA very soon

Seems that the sentence is correct and hence 1(A) is the answer.
3 does come close enought, but I'd go with the 'just as polio vaccine..., dietary changes are needed...' construction.

I also thought that answer should be B. But the OA given is A. I think correct idiom is jusa as... so..

we are talking of similar actions with intended 'similar' results. Just as Polio vaccine given (action 1) ... mass dietary change is needed (supposed - action 2).

I need to get more details on Just as ...so, anyway, here it won't make a logical sentence. "Just as polio vaccine is given.... so mass change is required..."
