A good reason to wear a bike helmet

Posted: Updated:

There is new evidence that helmets save lives. This comes from the Canadian Medical Journal, which confirms that simply wearing a bike helmet is good insurance in preventing a fatal head injury. Researchers reviewed more than a hundred cycling deaths, and found those who died from head injuries were three times less likely to be wearing a helmet.  Although there are inconsistent laws regarding helmet use across the country, researchers say these findings show that little helmet is worth the effort every time you get on a bike.
