Medical experts have amassed evidence concluding that users of smokeless tobacco be more prone to heart disease, hypertension, and mouth cancers than people who do not use smokeless tobacco.

A. be more prone to heart disease, hypertension, and mouth cancers
B. are proner to heart disease, hypertension, and mouth cancers
C. are more prone to heart disease, hypertension, and mouth cancers
D. experience heart disease, hypertension, and mouth cancers at heightened rates
E. suffer heart disease, hypertension, and mouth cancers at a higher risk

The sentence is incorrect because 'be more prone' is illogical and suggestive of future tense ,while grammatically being still wrrong,the sentence does not use future tense.
(idiom error)
Option B is wrong because the use of the 'are proner' which is incorrect.
Option D and option E are change in intended meaning because they mean that people will still get heart attacks and cancers but at a higher rate or higher risk.
Option C is the convey the correct meaning and is grammatically correct.
