A Doctor on Twitter revealed a secret that has not being known to many for a while now . He dropped a not widely known disclosure on how women can push up their tendency of having twins.

This all happened when one user, @MrBanksOmishore wrote ;


Then a popular doctor on the micro-blogging site, replied him saying;


Yes. Your parents having twins strongly make it likely you would.

And yes, women who eat a lot of yam have a higher tendency of having twins.
This is shocking but true.

Do u know a small town in Oyo State called Igbo-Ora has the highest number of twin births in the whole world?

And it is strongly believed the yam diet quite common in that area explains why they have the highest twin birth rate in the whole world.

Igbo-Ora in Oyo state I believe holds the record of the most twins born in the world.They eat a lot of okra plant and yam.They record about 158 twin births in 1000.The US records about only 33 in 1000,Europe is about 19 in 1000.

As a matter of fact, the BBC as at 2001 released an article on this.

As far back as many years ago, gynaecologists from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital did a research into this and the conclusions suggested the regular yam diet was probably the most likely explanation for it. Fascinating isn’t it?

But beyond that it is true.

And the scientific reason that support the findings of the research was the fact that yam was found to contain very high amounts of natural chemicals that make the woman release more than one egg per month when she ovulates, making it very likely to have a twin pregnancy.

So in simple terms, the yam seems to contain naturally similar chemicals that induce ovulation (egg production) in women.

So a regular diet of this yam makes it extremely likely to have twins if the woman gets pregnant.
