Bike Helmets Save Lives (A New Study Says...)

An interesting new study came out today.

As reported in the Toronto Star:

"In a new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, University of Toronto family doctor lecturer and St Michael’s Hospital associate scientist Navindra Persaud concludes that helmets help prevent fatalities — something he says until now was 'controversial'."

I've followed the helmet vs. no helmet debate, and frankly, never really understood the argument against helmets.  So seeing a study that indicates "The conclusion was that bicycle helmets save lives" - well, that just fills my little heart with glee.

I hope this sways some of the non-helmet wearing out there.
