October 1999 LSAT Section 1 Question 6
Melody on November 11, 2013This is a Must Be True question consisting of a set of facts. Remember, the passage is going to 100% support the correct answer. We know from the argument that the more cholesterol we have in our blood, the higher the risk that we shall die of a heart attack. We know that heart disease (of which heart attacks are included since heart attacks are a type of heart disease) kills more North Americans every year than any other single cause. And we are then given three factors, smoking, drinking, and exercise (all aspects of one's lifestyle) that can influence levels of cholesterol in the blood. If these factors can influence levels of cholesterol, then they can also influence the risk that we shall die of a heart attack, meaning they can influence the risk that we shall die of heart disease (seeing as heart attacks are a type of heart disease).
