Like squirrel undergoes hibernation during unfavourable periods if we induced the hibernation causing pitutary hormones in the human blood stream, can humans go to hibernation?

Humans cannot hibernate. There are a number of reasons why we would not expect them to do so.
Hibernation is thought to be an evolutionary adaptation to cold temperatures, and food scarcity, (perhaps also predator avoidance). Humans evolved in tropical regions with an abundance of food, and are also considered apex predators. There was thus no evolutionary pressure.
If we were to induce
sleep with the relevant pitutary hormones. Humans would likely die, if they do not have any life support.
