D. You can think that if this fact was discovered by not scientists (by architects for example) the second part of the sentence would be other than that we have. It is wrong accent - on scientists. But it has to be on the fact of lead poisoning. Out.
E. Due to the fact Roman aristocrats were suffering from lead poisoning was discovered by scientists - it is not a sentence. Was discovered by scientists - superfluous.
A,B - akward construction. Where is "that"? What is "to be suffering"?
C - active voice. Good.
