Walking – evolutionary speaking, to survive, our ancestors had to move from place to place. Combined with some jogging and running, walking was our main method of locomotion. Today we don’t need to walk to survive but our ancestral make-up still operates as it did when we walked out of Africa. It’s not difficult to see why a massive portion of the world population is sliding into the nightmare of obesity. Fail to move, fail to survive.
