What is the range of healthy human body temperature?

We are told that body temperature should ideally be 37C (or 98.6F) but how low and how high can it go?

How much does environment influence body temperature?

A couple of degrees at most I expect?

If i were in a snowstorm how low would my temperature go before it became a problem for me?

If i were walking across the desert in the noon day sun how high could my temp go before it became a problem?

If we were to test 20 people at random how much variance in their temperature could we expect?

    Do better research. 98.6 is in NO WAY considered normal!
