We can't have anything about cycle helmets saving injuries published, can
we?


Especially when it has been reported that some people have been badly
injured whilst wearing helmets.


Absolutely.

They won't stop you getting a broken leg or ribs, for a start.

Two people I knew were killed in a motor-bike accident a few years ago (one
was riding pillion). I suppose that means that motor-cycle helmets are of no
use either.

I can't believe that we're beginning to pick at that old scab again.
some people just will not let a comment stating that helmets can, in
some circumstances prevent or attenuate an injury go without response.
Even if it's Judith that writes it.

Please prove me wrong.

I am convinced that all Judith wants is for that obvious little factette to
be recognised and acknowledged, and that she would be satisfied with that as
far as the argument goes (though I dare say that she would not let the main
protagonists forget about it for some time thereafter).

OY Judith!

Cycle helmets, might in some circumstances prevent or attenuate and injury!

Now, will you **** off?

Oh the irony.



Indeed - you do write a load of ****e - and very frequently.

I really can't see why you are getting up tight about this.

The BMA support cycle helmets - get over it.

You encourage your children to wear them - get over it.

I can see why this may produce a moral dilemma.

How's Badger?

Thank you Simon.

If I was to pick up on your every little grammatical slip - then I
would be here all day.

However, I would rather concentrate on the substance so I am sorry I
will not correct your English for you.

Feel free to correct mine if you can't find anything worth saying.

There are many people here who will not answer a very simple question:

Do you think on balance that a cycle helmet is more likely to reduce
the risk of injuries to the head in case of an accident, or do you
think that it would increase the risk of injuries?

I must admit I do not know why they cannot answer this question.

'Fraid not - will you?

There are many more to educate yet and other interesting points to
discuss in an adult manner.

Of course many will find that too difficult and will have to cry :
troll.

That's because it's the wrong question to ask: it's too narrow.

At a whole population level, do you think that a manatory helmet law
for cyclists would have a positive or negative effect on the health of
the nation?

Others may have a better way to phrase the question, but I think that
I have caught the essence of what should be asked. In answering that
broader question other questions may need to be asked, including your
question above, but your question alone will lead to a Straw Man - but
you know this already. It is a credit to this group that *everyone*
has seen through it and no one will fall for it. It is a discredit to
you that you have so far been unable to set up a Straw Man that works.
But keep trying... some of us, at least, are amused by your
incompetent efforts.
