For several years Ponce De Leon heard magical stories about the "Fountain of Youth." In March of 1513 he set out to find the mysterious water source. Alas, he never did find it, because, as we now know, it never existed.
Today Americans are still pursuing Ponce De Leone's desire to find eternal youth. Of course we are no longer looking for a fountain, instead we have turned to vitamins, minerals, hormones, self-help books, drugs, injections and surgery.
