This Is The Maximum Human Lifespan According To Scientists

Researchers claim that they have grasped what the maximum lifespan of humans is. According to a study recently published in the journal of Nature Communications, a perfectly healthy human could live anywhere between 120 and 150 years.


The researchers note that living this long can only be achieved given that the person has made it through life without significant health issues like cancer and heart disease.


The study specifically estimated the natural process of aging over a human lifespan, highlighting the remarkable resilience of the human body.


The researchers, based at a company in Singapore called Gero, measured the 'pace of aging' in residents of the UK, US and Russia. They achieved this by examining the changes in blood cell counts and finding the rate at which the body declines.


According to the findings, between the ages of 120 and 150, the body's natural resilience eventually fails, leading to death.


The oldest person on record to have ever lived was Jeanne Calmet, who died aged 122, according to Scientific American.


Experts, however, argue that rather than asking how long humans can live, the real question should be how long we can life a healthy life.


Scientists argue that an important question we should be asking instead is, 'how long can we live a healthy life?'.


Heather Whitson, director of the Duke University Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development, told SA:


"Death is not the only thing that matters. Other things, like quality of life, start mattering more and more as people experience the loss of them."
