Celiac disease results from an inability of the digestive tract, specifically the small intestine, to absorb gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and certain other grains. The body’s immune system attacks the gluten as if the protein were a harmful pathogen, often resulting in serious damage to the intestinal lining. People who suffer from celiac disease must eliminate gluten from their diets. Symptoms of the disease include abdominal cramps, bloating, and anemia.

If the statements above are true, which of the following assertions can be made on the basis of them?

(A) Anyone who suffers from celiac disease will experience anemia.
(B) Eliminating gluten from one’s diet will cure celiac disease.
(C) People experiencing abdominal cramps, bloating, and anemia have celiac disease.
(D) Gluten is found only in grains.
(E) The human body cannot always recognize harmless substances.

Quesiton is about what we say finally from the given passage.

We are told that The body’s immune system attacks the gluten as if the protein were a harmful pathogen, often resulting in serious damage to the intestinal lining. Here the glutton infact is not a harmful but our mad immune system thinks like that.

When we go through all the choices outside information shouldn't come into the picture as we have to conclude based on the information that we have.
A. Too exteme.
B. Will cure is extreme.
C. This info not given
D. Only in grains not given.
E. Based on the as if condition we can predict this as our option. Hence this is correct.

Official solution plz.
