Linda asks…

How long would it take for a healthy middle aged man to die of thirst?

Suppose a healthy/fit man stopped eating and drinking. How long would he typically last and what symptoms would occur? Assume he’s able to just lie down and relax throughout the ordeal.

Power Health Tips answers:

A general rule of thumb is that you can survive for 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food.

It would depend a lot on conditions, if it was hot and arid, such as in a desert, then I doubt if even a 100% fit and healthy guy would last the 3 days without drinking, but if it was cool and damp, he could last a bit longer.
