In Australia similar laws have passed and doctors in Australia have said that there is “evidence of wider harm to population health resulting from the reduction in cycling”.

Cycling uk
Cycling UK is opposed to both cycle helmet laws and to helmet promotion campaigns because these are almost certainly detrimental to public health. Evidence shows that the health benefits of cycling are so much greater than the relatively low risks involved, that even if these measures caused only a very small reduction in cycle use, this would still almost certainly mean far more lives being lost through physical inactivity than helmets could possibly save, however effective.

The problem here isn't whether helmets make or difference or not, it is that you are forcing someone to do something that they may not want to do.
AYE.
