(ORDO NEWS) — An international group of scientists has set a maximum age to which a person can live.
To come up with a precise figure, researchers from Singapore-based biotech company Gero and the 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 the help of artificial intelligence.
Taking age, disease, and lifestyle factors into account, experts have found that somewhere between 120 and 150 years of age, the human body’s ability to recover completely runs out, meaning that a person cannot live beyond 150 years.
The oldest person to ever live was Jeanne Calment, who lived to be 122 years old, born in 1875 and lived until 1997.
Meanwhile, drugs are being tested that could slow down the body’s aging process and theoretically allow a person to live up to 200 years.
