dependes on the age of the person .As children can with stand a higher temp without diening. But the highest temp was recorded by nationalgeographice
some tibetion Monks clamed to be able to melt the snow around there bodys .
So geo sent a science team there hooked up temp gages to the monks
then the monks did there trance thing. And low and behold there temps reached 119% F .
now this is sop to be impossible as a normal man will start going into convolutions at around 106 and die at 107 -107.5
a child on the other hand can with stand temps tpo 107 befor going into convoltions and will die around 108.9.
On the other hand the monks could have easly raised there temps to 119 as LONG as the head (the brain) doesent have that temp your fine.
the body itself can with stand MUCH higher temps then even 119 without killing you . Its the brain thats senstive to temp changes .
anything below 86 or above 106 is near death for the brain.
But let me assure you your hands and feet get much colder down to 34% without frost bite .
heres a neat expairment if you live in a coldre zone take a LONG as hot as you can stand shower stay in an hour and half
you can run around out side at -20% and NOT feal a bite cold for about half an hour. The reasion for this is because high temps bring your blood to
the surfice of your skin . and ovesly all that hot blood keeps youinslated for a time.
