"helmet use perpetuates the false idea that cycling itself is inherently dangerous."

I've honestly never understood this idea.

Consider Mr. Meister's plea: he and the many others who make such pleas seem convinced that cycling is dangerous. He got the idea somewhere and I maintain that one source of this message is the helmet nannying and the attendant "imagine what happens if you don't wear one" campaigns which are inevitably invoked in pamphlets and articles.
