Chest Pain & Heart Disease

I was with a group of Asian Families in London at the weekend and the subject of “how do you know when chest pain is a heart attack?” came up.
In my in box this morning was an article on the very subject.

Your Lifestyle? Why pay to kill yourself?

Why do people continue to spend upwards of £6.00 a day fuelling a habit that can and does kill and says so on the packet? yet they won’t spend £3.00 a day on something that might just save their life or someone they know’s life?
