You can get some full face Snell approved Scorpion for 60 bucks shipped. Don't ask me where but my uncle got it and I saw the recipes.

You're overreacting. You don't need a new helmet.

If your head is not in the helmet when it hits the ground the foam remains undamaged and therefore is still OK.
The foam is black so you can look at it after a crash, if you see cracks in the black paint, white foam showing through, then the foam is compromised and the helmet should be replaced.

You don't need a new helmet, you need new friends.
I agree, Don't believe it... there is a video of some big Arai rep that mentioned the same thing. If you are still unsure send it in to the manufacturer for inspection both Shoei & Arai do this not sure about the others.

Shoei's Free Inspection Policy

Motorcycle helmets are designed to absorb the energy of an accident by being destroyed. Even a small impact can damage the integrity of the shell or EPS liner. This damage may be unnoticeable to the untrained eye, so Shoei recommends that any helmet involved in an impact should either be retired or sent to the manufacturer for inspection. Shoei will inspect Shoei helmets free of charge (minus shipping fees). If you would like to have your helmet inspected, please send the helmet and a letter explaining what happened to the helmet to the following address:

Shoei Safety Helmet Corp.
Attn: Inspection Dept.
3002 Dow St., Suite 128
Tustin, CA 92780 USA

Please remember to include your return address and phone number. We can't send your helmet back unless you provide this information.

Upon receiving your helmet, a Shoei inspection technician will inspect it within three business days and return it to the specified address via UPS Ground with a letter detailing the helmet's condition.
