Option B, D and E are out of scope and does not weaken the statement.

We are left with A and C

A - brocoli has no relation to heart disease.
This statement contradicts the Dr.Sean’s theory, but this was a statement from journal and has no relationship to the research and also we do not know the time of publication related to the research.

C - Everyone supposed to go jogging for 30 mins daily, now this says there is another reason for people to have lessen the risk of heart disease

Ans :C
