I was curious on how long a person can survive without food and water since we have Tom's father going on 2 weeks and he's still hanging in there.
Of course I went to the only source that I have - Google.
What I read is that second to oxygen water is the most important compound that the human body needs for survival. However, the amount of water needed depends on different conditions such as your physical activity and climate. As for food there's variables as well which can shorten or lengthen the time, but the amount of time a human can go without food based on information from medical doctors is no longer than four to six weeks - if there is a shortage of both food and water, the person will not survive more than 10 days.
It's interesting, but not exactly accurate in this case.
Have a blessed Sunday!
