One food writer wrote that reducing the amount of animal products in one's diet can contribute to better health and well-being. Based on this claim, some people are completely eliminating meat from their diets in order to be healthier.

The argument above relies on which of the following assumptions?

(A) Increasing the amount of vegetables and grains in one's diet can contribute to better health.
(B) There will be no corresponding increase in the amount of dairy products in the diets of those who are eliminating meat.
(C) Most food writers believe that some amount of animal products is necessary to a health diet.
(D) Not all healthy lifestyles require a vegetarian diet.
(E) Many people who do not eat animal products make decisions for health reasons.

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?
