Ok, how about my father who spent a very extended stay in the hospital when he was young after an accident back in the day when everyone went around without a helmet? Consensus seemed to be that he would have been fine with a helmet.
Just like seatbelts and airbags, sure they can cause and exacerbate certain things, but they prevent more problems than they cause by a long shot.
