Which of the following would most greatly weaken the argument above ?

(A) Meat- and dairy-free diets are low in calcium, which can lead to bone density decreases.

(B) Those who consume dairy but not meat are twice as likely to suffer a heart attack as those who consume neither meat nor dairy.

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

(D) Meat and dairty products are high in low-density cholesterol, which is known to harden arteries and cause other heart problems.

(E) Seven percent of those who consume dairy and meat regularly suffer heart attacks over the course of their lifetime.
