A top neurosurgeon is sparking a big debate after suggesting that wearing a bike helmet is "useless" and does not protect your brain while cycling.
But Yvette Sanborne and Steve Bodnaruk with David's World Cycle say that is not quite true. They say statistical data suggests your chance of dying while riding your bike is much higher if you do not wear a helmet.
Bodnaruk said his own experience is a testament to the life-saving benefit of helmets. He has been in two accidents with cars and both times went flying head-first into the car.
Both said the bottom line is take extra precaution when biking, especially by wearing a helmet.
