An international team of scientists has found the maximum age a person can live to, writes LADBible.
To work out the exact figure, researchers from Singapore-based biotech company Gero and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo studied the human body’s resilience and ability to recover from damage.
To analyze the medical data of hundreds of thousands of volunteers, scientists have resorted to artificial intelligence.
Taking age, disease, and lifestyle factors into account, experts have found that somewhere between 120 and 150 years old, the human body’s ability to repair completely dries up, which means that a person cannot live more than 150 years.
The oldest person who ever lived was Jeanne Calment, who made it to 122 years old after being born in 1875 and living right up to 1997.
Meanwhile, drugs that could try to slow the body’s aging process and theoretically allow someone to live to 200 are currently being tested.
