Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

The irradiation of food kills bacteria and thus retards spoilage. However, it also lowers the nutritional value of many foods. For example, irradiation destroys a significant percentage of whatever vitamin B1 a food may contain. Proponents of irradiation point out that irradiation is no worse in this respect than cooking. However, this fact is either beside the point, since much irradiated food is eaten raw, or else misleading, since
_______.

A. many of the proponents of irradiation are food distributors who gain from food’s having a longer shelf life
B. it is clear that killing bacteria that may be present on food is not the only effect that irradiation has
C. cooking is usually the final step in preparing food for consumption, whereas irradiation serves to ensure a longer shelf life for perishable foods
D. certain kinds of cooking are, in fact, even more destructive of vitamin B1 than carefully controlled irradiation is
E. for food that is both irradiated and cooked, the reduction of vitamin B1 associated with either process individually is compounded

I picked C....views???

Took time for me, but I go with E
you have to say why "irradiation is no worse than cooking" is misleading...and E seems to fit best.

IMO E

"Proponents of irradiation point out that irradiation is no worse in this respect than cooking". But if "the reduction of vitamin B1 associated with either process individually is compounded", then irradiation + cooking will be worst than just cooking.

Got this one through POE.

A: Irrelevant. We need to say why the proponents claim is misleading. While the premise in this choice maybe true, it doesn't help us explain why the claim is misleading.

B: Doesn't tell us why the claim is misleading.
C:irrelevant.
D: doesn't help us. We want to know why the proponents claim is misleading.

E: GMATnub says it the best. I got to this choice through POE, I ran outta time and didn't really understand the meaning of this choice, but I thought it meant added together makes it worse. wasn't sure.
