In order to help the most famine-stricken areas of the world, genetic engineers have proposed injecting certain animals with the growth hormone Iipazine, which increases the animals' ratio of meat to body fat. Those who oppose this plan are concerned that the hormone could cause health problems in the humans who eat the meat. A physician has defended the proposal, however, by asserting that humans can ingest as much as fifteen milligrams of Iipazine daily. and no animals would ever receive a dosage higher than ten milligrams.

Which of the following statements, if true, would be of the most use to the plan's critics in response to the physician's claim?

A. Lipazine occurs naturally in many animals that are farmed for human consumption.

B. Each package of meat that had been treated with Iipazine would hear a label warning consumers of that fact.

C. Lipazine is widely used among weight lifters who desire to build muscle mass in a brief period of time.

D. Some religions that are prevalent in famine-stricken countries have deemed that consumption of meat is sinful.

E. Lipazine has been shown to cause sterility in certain animals.

A. Lipazine occurs naturally in many animals that are farmed for human consumption.
If Lipazine occurs naturally too, then the quantity in an animal would increase beyond 15mg, thereby making it harmful for human consumption.
