Which one of the following, if true, most helps to resolve the apparent paradox described above?

A. People who eat a lot of honey tend to consume very little sugar form other sources. Ok. but, what about the sugar in honey?
B. Many people who consume a lot of honey consume much of it dissolved in drinks. Indifferent. You still consume the sugar in honey
C. People’s dental hygiene habits vary greatly. Out of scope
D. Refined sugars have been linked to more health problems than have unrefined sugars. Indifferent
E. Honey contains bacteria that inhibit the growth of the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Correct

agent1212,

The reason (A) is not the answer is because the honey still contains a lot of sugar, so people are still receiving a decent amount. Given this, we cannot conclude that this helps resolve our paradox. (E) says that the honey prevents cavities. This shows that although it is high in sugar, it prevents cavities.

Diagram: Sugar --> cavities
Honey --> High in sugar --> No cavities --> How?
Honey --> High in sugar --> Missing Detail -->No cavities


So, to bridge the gap in our knowledge, we need to know WHY honey doesn't cause cavities. (E) does this flawlessly.

Does this help?
