ABC News travels to the Japanese fountain of youth -- a place that some medical researchers believe may hold the key to anti-aging remedies. In the Japanese town of Yuzuri Hara, many residents live well into their nineties. Diseases such as cancer, diabetes or Alzheimer's are uncommon. Dr. Toyosuke Komori, the town doctor who has studied and written books on longevity in Yuzuri Hara, believes locally grown starches help stimulate the body's natural creation of a substance called hyaluronic acid, or HA, which aging bodies typically lose. This may ward off the aging process by helping the cells of the body thrive and retain moisture, keeping joints lubricated, protecting the retina in eyes and keeping skin smooth and elastic.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

At the end of the 20th century, all that's left of the Ndoki rain forest in Democratic Republic of the Congo is a few scattered patches.

ABC News reports the story of one man devoting his life to preserving the way his fragile fellow creatures live theirs in a land half a world away -- a unique and beautiful place on the African continent which humans have yet to plunder.

ABC News Specials Medical Mysteries Series-Episode #6
Manufacturer: ABC News
Medical science has progressed exponentially in recent times, but scientists are still left with unanswered questions when it comes to the human body. "Medical Mysteries" looks at some of the rarest disorders and syndromes in medicine today. How could a father not recognize his own children? It's a condition known as face blindness, but people who have it can see faces perfectly well, they just can't process what people look like. ABC News reports on the neurological disorder Prosopagnosia, where people can't distinguish faces -- including their own. Until recently, most Prosopagnosia cases have been the result of stroke or brain injury, but now researchers say there may be a single gene to blame. Then, for most couples their wedding day is unforgettable, but just three days after Sean McNulty married his wife, Amy Harrison, he couldn't remember anything from his life.
