The man who made the Statue of Liberty appear to vanish may soon claim to do the same for unsightly bags and wrinkles. Master illusionist David Copperfield says he has found the"Fountain of Youth" in the southern Bahamas, amid a cluster of four tiny islands he recently bought for $50 million (26.4 million pounds).One of his islands in the Exuma chain, Musha Cay, is a private resort that rents for up to $300,000 a week and the other islands serve as buffers to keep prying eyes away from celebrity guests on the white sand beaches.Copperfield is coy about his reasons for the Fountain of Youth claim, but the man best known for entertaining with grand deception insists his archipelago also contains the legendary waters that bestow perpetual youth.

Seriously. "I've discovered a truephenomenon," he told Reuters in a telephone interview. "You can take dead leaves, they come in contact with the water, they become full of life again. ... Bugs or insects that are near death, come in contact with the water, they'll fly away. It's an amazing thing, very, very exciting." Copperfield, who turns 50 next month, said he had hired biologists and geologists to examine its potential effect on humans but he's not inviting visitors to swim in or drink from it just yet.

Did the Spanish explorer really go searching for the fabled fountain or was this nothing but a myth ?The story goes that Juan Ponce de León departed Puerto Rico in 1513 on a quest to discover the location of the Fountain of Youth, a mythical wellspring said to grant everlasting life. While his goal was to reach what would later become known as the Bahamas, Ponce instead found himself landing along the coast of Florida where he staked a claim on behalf of the Spanish crown.There ishowever a problem with this story.

The idea that Ponce set sail to find the Fountain of Youth didn"t arise until some years after his death and appears to have been a fabrication aimed at discrediting him. Instead, it is believed that Ponce was granted Bimini as a consolation prize from King Ferdinand after he had been forced to surrender his governorship. His purpose for setting sail was to find and claim the islands, not to find the Fountain of Youth as was later suggested. "Half a millennium ago, in 1513, the Spanishexplorer Juan Ponce de León departed Puerto Rico for the verdant island of “Bimini”—an uncharted land in what is now the Bahamas."

A daily rasher of bacon might not seem very healthy but 105-year-old Pearl Cantrell swears by it.The centenarian has raised seven children during her lifetime and recently celebrated her 105th birthday, but it isn"t a healthy diet, exercise or medication that she attributes for her longevity. "I love bacon. I eat it everyday, " she says. "I don’t feel as old as I am. That’s all I can say."Bacon is afood that has come under considerable scrutiny in recent years, both because of its popularity and because scientists can"t seem to decide on whether it is beneficial or detrimental to eat it on a regular basis.

In two recent studies, a portion of processed meat ( such as bacon ) every day has the potential to increase the risk of death by as much as 20%. A very small helping every day however of less than 20g was linked to a 3% risk reduction. "What’s the secret to an extra-long life? For one centenarian, it just might be bacon."

Russian Billionaire Dmitry Itskov has founded an initiative intent on finding a way to live forever.More than 20,000 people have so far signed up for Itskov"s "2045 initiative" which aims to extend human life indefinitely by creating replica android bodies in which to exist free of the restraints of our biological selves. Complete with artificial organs and neural interfaces, the robotic shells will be loaded with the consciousness of those participating in the program so that,according to Itskov, they can live forever.The far-fetched concept has been planned in stages which include the development of android "avatars" by the year 2020.

"Neo-humanity will change the bodily nature of the human being, and make them immortal, free, playful, independent of limitations of space and time," said Itskov. "These transformations will not restrict the individuality and freedom of each separate person, but on the contrary will ensure maximum creative development and reveal their unlimited potential." "Russian Billionaire Dmitry Itskov is the founder of the 2045 Initiative which he explains is a way to extend the human life."
