A diet high in saturated fats increases a person’s risk of developing heart disease.Regular consumption of red wine reduces that risk. Per-capita consumption of saturatedfats is currently about the same in France as in the United States, but there is less heartdisease there than in the United States because consumption of red wine is higher inFrance. The difference in regular red-wine consumption has been narrowing, but nosimilar convergence in heart-disease rates has occurred.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to account for the lack of convergence noted
above?
A. Consumption of saturated fats is related more strongly to the growth of fatty
deposits on artery walls, which reduce blood flow to the heart, than it is to heart
disease directly.
B. Over the past 30 years, per-capita consumption of saturated fats has remained
essentially unchanged in the United States but has increased somewhat in France.
C. Reports of the health benefits of red wine have led many people in the United
States to drink red wine regularly.
D. Cigarette smoking, which can also contribute to heart disease, is only slightly
more common in France than in the United States.
E. Regular consumption of red wine is declining dramatically among young adults in
France, and heart disease typically does not manifest itself until middle age.

A - strengthens the argument
B - neutral to the argument
C - neutral to the argument
D - weakens the argument
E - perfectly strengthens the argument

consumption reduced - but heart disease will not be evident until middle age. gives the reason behind the contradiction.
