It has been said that a good personality can help one succeed in life. But can it also guard against disease risk? A new study based on data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) shows that positive personality traits, such as optimism, actually may help to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

I'm not so sure about preventing diabetes but I do believe that a positive attitude really helps the body deal with a lot of health problems.  I don't think you can cure a disease but it makes it easier for the body to deal with problems.
