In most cases, the voltage of an electric incident, such as from a broken light bulb or a stun gun, is must less important than the amperage. In theory, there is no upper limit to the voltage that a human can survive, depending on how many amps are flowing.

1mA = Threshold for Human Perception

1 - 6mA = Let-go current. The sensation is unpleasant but does not impair the ability of muscles to release objects

9 - 25mA = Painful sensation experienced. Usually difficult or impossible to release energized objects if grasped by ones hand.

60-100mA = Results in Ventricular fibrillation / stoppage of the heart / Inhibition of respiration. this would ultimately result in serious injury or death.

It depends on how strong a person heart is and it can tolerate upto 1000 ohms whereas heart can tolerate only upto 1 mA.

0.3mA is is when a safety switch trips because at 0.4mA you have a heart attack and at 0.5mA your dead !

30 mA. anything over 30 mA can kill you

### How much heat can electric current passing through the human body create?

It depends on the amount of current, enough current can cook the body.

### How much current can be tolerated by a human body?

It varies depending on where in the body the current is passing through. Less than .1mA, if it's across the heart.

### In spite of having too much resistance why does current pass through the body?

Are you under the impression that water has "too much resistance" to electrical current? If so, I can't really explain this to you. The biggest substance one could point to in the human body is water. It's almost literally what a human body is made of. For this reason, human bodies conduct electricity extremely well. You're right to mention current instead of voltage. High voltage will stun you, but a few milliamps of current across your heart could easily kill you.
