Question
I am still not sure if this is the right category/your field of expertise, but i had a question about body temperature maintenance.

I know there are many variables affecting this question but here it goes. What is the general lower bound of a temperature range a naked and inactive human can maintain an ideal body temperature? When is our metabolism no longer able to keep up? My initial guess is right around room temperature, but i could be wrong?

Answer
beyond field of expertise as to question asking,however i do hope these sites help you
