There does not appear to be a consensus among scientists as to the
oldest possible age that a human could live. To illustrate the stark
differences among scientists, here are two opposed views:
- Robert Mitchell, professor of biology at Penn State: "As far as
maximum lifespan goes, we suspect it's around 125 years. There's no
evidence that humans can live any longer than that."
"Time, longevity, and human aging"
The Pennsylvania State University
- "There is no scientific basis on which to estimate a fixed upper
limit. Whether 115 or 120 years, it is a legend created by scientists
who are quoting each other."
"'No limit' to human life span"
