One of the most notorious performance-enhancing drugs is stanozolol, an anabolic steroid found in many dietary supplements used by athletes and bodybuilders. Because of the drug’s notoriety, the governing bodies of all major sports competitions routinely test for its presence in athletes’ bloodstreams and consider it a banned substance. LMG, a new exercise supplement, is promoted to athletes as being completely free of stanozolol. For this reason, athletes whose only dietary supplement is LMG do not have to worry about testing positive for stanozolol.

Which of the following is an assumption required by the argument above?

A. LMG does not contain any anabolic steroids other than stanozolol that are detectable in athletes’ bloodstreams.
B. Despite not including stanozolol, LMG is as effective a dietary supplement as others favored by athletes.
C. Stanozolol is not naturally present in foods commonly consumed by athletes.
D. LMG does not lead to dangerous side effects.
E. LMG is not currently considered a banned substance by the governing bodies of major sports competitions.
