    There are many factors that go into how long a human can survive without food and water, and the will to do so is one of them. Going without water isn't smart, and it doesn't take long before you're suffering from dehydration. Food is a different story. Humans can go quite a long time without food as long as they're well hydrated. Your body weight, overall health and the weather play into the scenario as well. So the answer to the question isn't easy and depends on the person and the situation.

    It depends upon the atmosphere. Generally 3 days, however in warmth your frame will dehydrate quicker so a wilderness you're going to lose extra water rapidly. However, there may be water in a few meals and culmination so anybody might move longer with out water if they're consuming like apples and oranges or different culmination.

    Eating- really depends on a lot of things like weight, percent body fat, genetic factors

    Drinking- about 3 days

    Breathing- not even a day. some people can't go five minutes without breathing.
