Question is asking how it benefits not the popularity.

(B) Studies have shown that training in stress management is not effective for many people.
This weakens rather than strengthen the case. As it indicates for some people it might be detrimental.

(C) Regular exercise reduces people’s risk of heart disease and provides them with increased energy.
Correct +ve benefits out of program.

(D) Physical injuries sometimes result from entering a strenuous physical fitness program too quickly.
This weakens rather than strengthen the case. As it indicates for some people it might be detrimental.

(E) Employee assistance programs require companies to hire people to supervise the various programs offered.
This weakens rather than strengthen the case. As it shows a additional cost to company.
