Increases in levels of mercury in the human heart increase toxicity by decreasing the body’s natural ability to purge those extra toxins. Levels of mercury in the hearts of some individuals may rise as a result of eating an excessive amount of mercury-rich fish such as swordfish.

Which of the following is a correct inference that can be drawn from the information provided?

A. Individuals who avoid eating mercury-rich fish face no risk of increasing toxins in the bloodstream.
B. Individuals who do not eat mercury-rich fish regularly will have a lower risk of developing increased toxicity in their bloodstreams as they age.
C. Abstaining from mercury-rich fish altogether is the most effective method of lowering toxicity.
D. An abundance of mercury-rich fish will increase toxins in the bloodstreams of some people.
E. Only abstaining from mercury-rich fish is necessary to lower toxicity levels in the bloodstreams of individuals of average weight.

ALL choices except D are too extreme in the language and D flows directly from the PARA..

A. Individuals who avoid eating mercury-rich fish face no risk of increasing toxins in the bloodstream.
NO risk!!!.. there can be many other reasons that can lead to excessive mercury

B. Individuals who do not eat mercury-rich fish regularly will have a lower risk of developing increased toxicity in their bloodstreams as they age.
Again ALL individuals!!! - some may have some other reasons to develop excessive mercury

C. Abstaining from mercury-rich fish altogether is the most effective method of lowering toxicity.
MOST effective!!! - not mentioned anywhere

D. An abundance of mercury-rich fish will increase toxins in the bloodstreams of some people.
Correct

E. Only abstaining from mercury-rich fish is necessary to lower toxicity levels in the bloodstreams of individuals of average weight.
ONLY!!! - extreme again

D

I guess the right option is incorrect because it states "An abundance of mercury-rich fish will increase toxins in the bloodstreams of some people." that abundance of fish can happen anywhere such as either in pond or in river. It doesn't say about the consumption of that particular fish.

Please correct me if m wrong ?
