GMAT Integrated Reasoning  >  Two-Part Analysis Question # 13: Cardiac Surgeon & Lifestyle  
Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0

Cardiac Surgeon: Although fast foods, processed snacks, and microwave meal replacements better fit the needs of working professionals who have little time and are always on the go, such "convenient" foods are harmful to the body's cardiovascular system as excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower lead to chronic inflammation of blood vessels. We can therefore make predictions about a person's cardiovascular health on the basis of a lifestyle characteristic of the person.

The cardiac surgeon suggests that a certain type of prediction about a person can be made on the basis of the person having a certain lifestyle characteristic. Indicate in the table the possible characteristic and prediction that most strongly conform to the cardiac surgeon's suggestion. Make only two selections, one in each column.

The person is at risk for heart attacks due to chronic inflammation of the blood vessels.
