Straight E.
Cam down o C and E. But C cannot be the answer because it mention only excercise while E covers both the aspects i.e. excercise as well as drugs correctly.

I need help to give some explanations. I need to know your opinion about why A is incorrect.
is it because the premise "no drug holds any promise for slowing down the changes associated with aging" means that we can not merely assume that taking drugs has the same effect on aging as does a lack of exercise?
I can not find the reason why we should rely on exercise than on drugs?

E: Therefore indicates you need implication should be related to the previous clause/sentence.
Since drugs cannot resolve the problem, what should you do-? you do exercise.
