Does control of your mind have anything to do with health?

In paleolithic times it would seem that there were no schools, media, and a myriad of other factors, which now (at times) attempt to close people's minds with respect to some subjects. Does that difference have an impact on your health? If so, how? If not, why?

I knew I would draw out someone who is a bigshot on this site (7,600+). The answer to this question is a no brainer. How is control of people's minds accomplished? Information or lack of information (suppression). You have the power to vote to close or any questions, and (with 10,000) moderate. So you and the group you are associated with think you can control what truth is. You have only succeeded in revealing your game to intelligent people who could really help this website's stated cause but don't bother to try to help others here. This is why Wikipedia has lost credibility.

Yes. Positive people tend to get sick less than those who are negative (at least in my own social circles it seems). Among other reasons, this is probably true because your mindset affects your mood, which affects your actions, which affect how you live. Your outlook can have a direct impact on your lifestyle and therefore your health and well-being.

Do factors that effect your decision making effect your decision making?

Yes.

Can your decisions effect your health?

Yes.

I don't see what is special about the paleolithic or the modern world in this hypothesis. The ways in which we are able to interact with the universe directly shape the way we think about the universe. Linguistically, this is the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linguistic_relativity .
