Hi...

The para talks of reducing animal PRODUCTS and few who have eliminated the meat completely from their diet.

Question???
WHAT about other animal PRODUCTS.

You can eliminate all choices easily.
Rather you would eliminate the Correct choice if you miss out on difference between animal PRODUCTS and animal meat

B gives an assumption that while decreasing a certain part of PRODUCTS and increasing the other part, dairy products..

Ans B

Not a good question IMO- E can be the answer. Negating B-there will be an increase in dairy products-ok so what?

+1 : B

We need to assume that no alternate animal product is being consumed by people who have stopped eating meat to make the conclusion valid.

On the other hand, we don't know from the passage that what other why other people made decisions to avoid animal products. So E can't be assumed IMO.
