Research suggesting that cycling with a helmet in the UK is more dangerous than without

I stumbled on this article today.  Obviously, there are many issues around this.  But someone actually got on the road with a bike and some sensors and recorded how much room motorists gave him when he had a helmet and without.  (Also if he wore a wig to look like a female cyclist.)  The result:  cars gave more room when passing if he did not have a helmet on, suggesting that a cyclist would be more likely to get in an accident.  (Although the helmet would offer more protection, obviously.)  Anyway - it was a somewhat interesting read...
