Scientists have determined the oldest age humans can live to

Researchers studying the relationship between aging and the ability to cope with stress found that the limits of a human lifespan lie anywhere from 120 to 150.

Based on data collected from an iPhone app and medical records from volunteers in both the United States and United Kingdom, the study’s authors measured subjects’ resilience to stressors. With age, the researchers found a decline in the subjects ability to recover.

“As we age, more and more time is required to recover after a perturbation, and on average we spend less and less time close to the optimal physiological state,” study author Timothy V. Pyrkov said in a press release.

The study, which was published in the scientific journal Nature, additionally found that even the healthiest volunteers were subject to the same fundamental laws of aging. The group concluded that “no strong life extension is possible by preventing or curing diseases without” without intercepting fundamental laws of the aging process.

“Aging in humans exhibits universal features common to complex systems operating on the brink of disintegration,” said Peter Fedichev, co-founder and CEO of Gero, a biotech company involved in the research.
