Good letter about cycle helmets

The current issue of the CTC magazine "Cycle" has a good letter about cycle helmets from Peter Clinch, who describes himself as a clinical scientist. He says that he used to regard cyclists who didn't wear helmets as a bit dim. Then he looked into the evidence for the things and realized that he had had the wool pulled over his eyes.
It is no more daft to go without a helmet on a bike in the UK than it is to walk bare-headed along the pavements, yet nobody seems to think it goes against "common sense" to do that."

Clinch points readers to this excellent information site, which should certainly be consulted by all helmet zealots.
