to helmet or not to helmet….

I checked out this website as advised  http://www.cyclehelmets.org/ and I read this research http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=16565131.

 Interesting and statistical.  I understand what is said, I understand that proper scientific methods, probabilities and evaluating the norm are in full evidence and for that I appreciate the due diligence that these authors and scientists have taken. 

My perspective is not from the realm of science it is from the heart of a mother. A mother who had a mother like me. One who did what she was supposed to do to make sure her children are healthy and productive and to make sure they make it to adulthood with a minimum amount of broken limbs and in this case a minimum amount of head trauma and skinned legs. I would rather err on the side of the possibility that the helmet may save their lives than to be forced to live in sheer agony with the possibility that it could have saved their lives. We are stewards of our children. We make all the decisions, pay all the bills, perform all manner of doctor duties and discipline and bring the love. According to The Bike Doctor Shakespeare’s famous words To be or Not to be –or to helmet or not to helmet.
