From a published article describing the results of the study presented above, the following data table is abstracted. This table presents the relative risk (RR) of clinical diabetes of for each of the categories of fat intake relative to the baseline category of < 20 %. Interpret the study findings from the tabular data

(Table)

A. Levels 2, 3 and 4 have significantly elevated risks for DM relative to baseline
B. Levels 2 and 3 are significantly different from each other
C. Levels 3 and 4 are significantly different frim baseline and risk elevating
D. Levels 3 and 4 are not significantly different from each other
E. RR for Levels 2, 3, and 4 are numerically different but not significantly differnt from baseline




According to Kaplan the correct answer would be C, any ideas how and why?
