C. use of SFCs is more prevalent today among developing countries, where fertility rates are relatively high.

Both options D and E are same. But keeping that aside i think the answer is D/E in this case since it is the only option which talks about finding no damage to the reproductive cells

Not really sure between D & E though D has the word "durning" which might change the meaning of sentence.
