### HideShow timer Statistics

Although aspirin has been proven to eliminate moder-
ate fever associated with some illnesses, many doctors
no longer routinely recommend its use for this purpose.
A moderate fever stimulates the activity of the body's
disease-fighting white blood cells and also inhibits the
growth of many strains of disease-causing bacteria.

If the statements above are true, which of the following
conclusions is most strongly supported by them?
(A) Aspirin, an effective painkiller, alleviates the pain
and discomfort of many illnesses.
(B) Aspirin can prolong a patient's illness by eliminat-
ing moderate fever helpful in fighting some
diseases.
(C) Aspirin inhibits the growth of white blood cells,
which are necessary for fighting some illnesses.
(D) The more white blood cells a patient's body
produces, the less severe the patient's illness
will be.
(E) The focus of modern medicine is on inhibiting the
growth of disease-causing bacteria within the
body.
