Doctors baffled by Indian village of over 200 sets of twins
rating: 0+x


August 4, 2009: The village of Kodinji, India (population ~15,000) is home to over 230 sets of twins. This is 4 times the statistical average for a community of it's size. Currently, 5 more women are also pregnant with Twins. Doctors are baffled, as the village has none of the usual environmental or cultural factors that generally contribute to twinage (such as exposure to fertility drugs, certain modern dietary habits, or pregnancies happening late in life). Instead, this is a traditional community in a remote area - often separated from the rest of India by flooding during the monsoon season. Which has lead to some people suggesting it's something in the water1.
