New Delhi: While human longevity had been limited to 115 years, a recent study had turned the tables by claiming that there was no limit to human lifespan.
However, in a first-of-its-kind research that looked at 120 years worth of historical information, scientists have suggested that humans may have reached their maximum limits for height, lifespan and physical performance.
They have explained that human have biological limitations and that anthropogenic impacts on the environment – including climate change – could have a deleterious effect on these limits.
Despite stories that with each generation we will live longer and longer, this review suggests there may be a maximum threshold to our biological limits that we cannot exceed.
Researchers studied trends emerging from historical records, concluding that there appears to be a plateau in the maximum biological limits for humans height, age and physical abilities.
