..It seem "obvious" that helmets should have some sort of positive effect, doesn't it? But only stupid people confuse the obvious with the true. Neurological injuries are complex and non-intuitive. My own feeling is that if a helmet has no significant effect on mortality - and we are now agreed that it doesn't - I'd rather take a greater chance of a scalp cut and a lesser one of a minor brain injury. But mostly, if a helmet can only protect against minor injuries or super unlikely freaks - which I think everyone should now see is the case - then I just don't care!
