Many older people have taken up bike riding– it is healthy, fun and not hard on the joints. One point of contention in some families, however, is whether or not to wear a helmet.

A review of 40 studies by Jake Oliver at the University of New South Wales in Australia shows that wearing a helmet decreased face injury by 33 percent and fatal head injury by 65 percent.

Others argue that forcing people to wear helmets decreases bike ridership and prevents some individuals from gaining the health benefits of riding.
