Re: Over one-fifth of injured US adult cyclists were not wearing a helmet

These studies continue to be more about reinforcing the investigators bias about cyclists than anything about reducing head injury.

Cohort studies always show that far more head injuries occur in pedestrians... yet no studies about their head injuries, or preventing them

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

A glaring example is the Liberal so called Democrat opportunists trying to boost their electoral credentials in the most anti democratic way possible. I'm mystified. How can this be? The LibDems have put this pledge in their manifesto , that they intend to revoke Article 50 if they get elected . An...

Re: Boy with helmet has accident

Was the crack due to some previous damage to the helmet causing a weak point in the structure?
