Ecuador’s Fountain of Youth

"Vilcabamba Ecuador"A small isolated village in the Cuenca region of Ecuador (that’s to the south east of Guayaquil in the middle of the Andes) gained a certain amount of notoriety in the 1960s when doctors announced that it had some of the longest living people in the world. While it wasn’t exactly the fountain of youth (judging by the aged faces of the villagers), it was certainly remarkable how these people were living well into their 130s. Clearly there was some secret these people were keeping about keeping old age at bay.
