Why is religious belief good for health?

Andrew Sims:

“The advantageous effect of religious belief on mental and physical health is one of the best kept secrets in psychiatry and medicine in general.” If the discoveries of the immense volume of research on this subject had gone in the opposite direction and it has been proven that religion harms our mental health, it would be the front-page news in all the newspapers of the world. “
