Emotions affect human behavior in ways beyond your imagining. (For the really long answer, peruse this web site.) Virtually all aspects of human behavior and most aspects of human health have some emotional connection.

A simple example is a phobia. A fear of [whatever] will cause a person to avoid it, get ill in the presence of it, spend money on therapy to talk about it, teach their friends and family to not bring it around, and a host of other behaviors. Most likely the cause is an emotional experience with it, sometimes long forgotten.
