(C) smoking cigarettes is a much more serious health risk than the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables in one's diet
(D) vegetarians tend to live longer than folks in the general population
(E) folks with heart disease who eat few or no fresh fruits and vegetables have heart attacks at a much higher rate than do the folks who eat those foods.

The argument evaluation: P, found in fresh fruits and vegetables, benefit the human cardiorvascular system.

HD = major health concern, American doctors should encourage all people, especially those with HD, to eat P.

Which of the following, if true, provides the most support for the argument above?
(D) vegetarians tend to live longer than folks in the general population => The argument talks about the health problem, not whether who live longer, vegetarians or folks. So, this answer is a trap.
(E) folks with heart disease who eat few or no fresh fruits and vegetables have heart attacks at a much higher rate than do the folks who eat those foods. => Correct.

POE ; good enough to eliminate options A-D
(E) folks with heart disease who eat few or no fresh fruits and vegetables have heart attacks at a much higher rate than do the folks who eat those foods.
If American doctors encourage all people, especially those with heart disease, to eat a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables then it 'll help in reducing the heart risk for all, especially the folks with heart ailments.

Prethinking: Eating fresh fruits and vegetables ---> benefits the heart.

(A) the combination of soluble and insoluble fibers found in whole grains also support heart health: NOT RELEVANT TO CONCLUSION DRAWN
(B) a large percentage of those who suffer heart disease in the United States do not live close to large agricultural area where fruits and vegetables are grown. But they can still ve access to fresh fruits and veg. VERY BROAD AND WEAK STATEMENT
(C) smoking cigarettes is a much more serious health risk than the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables in one's diet. NOT RELEVANT TO CONCLUSION DRAWN
(D) vegetarians tend to live longer than folks in the general population. DOESNT ADDRESS fresh fruits and vegetables. NOT RELEVANT TO CONCLUSION DRAWN
(E) folks with heart disease who eat few or no fresh fruits and vegetables have heart attacks at a much higher rate than do the folks who eat those foods. Correct AO.

Official Explanation


This argument has a relatively well-accepted conclusion: all people, and especially those at risk for heart disease, should eat a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables. It's already a strong from familiarity, and we want to make it stronger.

(E) is the credited answer. If folks with heart disease who don't eat fruits and vegetables are much more likely to have heart attacks, then that is another huge piece of evidence in favor of the conclusion that fruits and vegetables are so important for heart health.

(A) is true but irrelevant. The fact that whole grains are also healthy give no additional evidence as to why fresh fruits and vegetables are so important.

(B) is entirely irrelevant. In our modern day and age, fruits and vegetables are shipped all over the world. One does not need to live close to a farm to have these as a regular part of one's diet.

(C) is true but also irrelevant. Smoking is bad, but this tells us nothing about why fresh fruits and vegetables are good.

(D) is too open-ended. To be vegetarian implies an entire lifestyle ---- for example, it has high correlations with yoga, meditation, time in Nature, eating organic, and a number of other factors that can affect heart health. We have no way of knowing whether it is very specifically the fresh fruits and vegetables in the diet of vegetarians that gives them edge in heart health. There are just too many factors in play to draw such a specific conclusion.
