Drinking is a known cause of certain serious health problems, including cirrhosis of liver and mouth cancer. Now, an additional concern can be added to the list of maladies caused by drinking. A recent study surveyed both boozers and teetotalers, and found that boozers are significantly more anxious and nervous than teetotalers.
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument rests?
(a) Anxiety and nervousness can lead to serious health problems
(b) Anxiety and nervousness do not make individuals more likely to start drinking.
(c) Boozers are aware of the various health problems attributed to drinking, including cirrhosis of liver and mouth cancer.

The answer is option B.
But I am not able to understand the logic. Can anyone help me explain why is answer B?
A detailed explanation will be helpful.
