fountain of youth: myth or medicine?
Posted in the Anthropology Forum

The Fountain of Youth is a legendary spring that reputedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks of its waters. Tales of such a fountain have been recounted across the world for thousands of years, appearing in writings by Herodotus, the Alexander romance, and the stories of Prester John (source: Wikipedia).
Some crytpo-anthropologists believe that the mythical fountain of youth is located in the mysterious and as of yet unmapped land of Bimini, while others including the daring Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon believed that the supposedly "magical" fountain may be in Florida (USA).
Whether or not the medicinal "fountain of youth" is real or imaginary, its historic attractive search and timeless Earthly romance perhaps reflects the ecological anxiety symbolism in the Earth-themed Hollywood (USA) movie "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" (1992).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
