Hi, can someone explain why C is the right answer? Why exactly is E wrong? Thanks!

Wow I'm reviewing that exact question right now; got it wrong as well

C) is right because those that are prevented of iatrogenic disease could die another way ie) the day they were supposed to die of iatrogenic disease but didn't because they were prevented from it can die from another cause the next day

So the conclusion that the number of deaths per year would decrease by half is falsified.

Also I think E) is incorrect because those that die because of iatrogenic disease, that is, disease due to medical treatment or hospitalization, are the same people that were given that medical treatment because of a non iatrogenic disease (pneumonia, for example); so that also wouldn't affect the number of deaths per year - it would leave it unchanged.

Define iatrogenic disease and you should see why the possibility of E being the correct answer is absurd. Also, C is correct because, by defining Iatrogenic disease, you know that it is a type of result of a treatment area or multiple treatment areas. If medicine prevents all people from dying due to incompetence in this particular area they can and will still die because of the particular diseases they have, or, for some other reason
