In 1994, a handful of national health organizations,as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics, started instructing mothers to put babies to sleep on their backs to help avoid sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The incidence of SIDS has since diminished more than 50 percent.
But according to other studies, an inadvertent result of the campaign is that more kids are achieving motor milestones later, because the babies' upper bodies aren't as robust due to a lack of time spent on their stomachs.
When babies skip crawling -- the very first thing they are missing out on is the coordination that crawling creates between right and left brain. By crawling, babies are forced to coordinate both upper and lower extremities to work together in a balanced manner and by this we mean the classic hands-and-knees crawl. Also, they miss out on more opportunities to develop that strength and wind up with weaker upper body muscles.
How to create habits for your baby for healthy balance spine and brain. Get them to crawl as much as possible before walking.

I haven't read many books that in very few, easy terms opens up a different culture in a way that an average reader can relate to it. This book is very well researched and uses credible sources. At the same time, it does not exaggerate facts or include hype that you usually read in a lot of health books.
Healthy at 100 exposes four different cultures where people live long and active lives like in Okinawa, Japan,. By studying these people's habits and culture, the author draws conclusions about how we can imitate them in ways that suit us. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about true health.
The chapter that impressed me the most is chapter seven, because Robbins makes an emphasis on the emotional health of groups and individuals in different cultures and how it affects physical health.
