Can walking be good exercise?

Can walking be good exercise?

The best!: Walking is the exercise! Fish swim, birds fly, land-based mammals walk. Except for last 50 years, we spent most of our time standing/walking. Is walking 30 min then sitting all day good exercise? It beats 24 hours of just sitting. (see "23.5 hours" http://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=auains6higo)
even better? Sit fewer than 3 hours a day & add 2+ good years to your life.
