Negative influence


What's the most grammatically correct way to say the following:
" I apologize for
(A) having a negative impact on
(B) having a negative effect on
(C) having/being a negative influence on
(D) negatively affecting
...your respiratory system."

Does not have to be one of the options above, those were just all I could think of. Thanks.

They all work, but I would go with (C) being a negative influence

They are all good, and I like all of the first there equally. D is good; I just don't like it as much.
