NAIJA GIST: A Nigerian doctor on twitter has revealed a secret that has not being known to many for a while.

The doctor

This happened when a twitter user @mrbanksomishore tweeted:

“I wouldn’t mind having twins. Considering my parents had 2 set of twins, the possibilities are strong. Heard eating of yam increases the chances. How true is that?

Then a popular blogger doctor replied:

“Yes, your parents having twins strongly make it likely you would. And yes, women who eat a lot of yam gave a higher tendency of having twins. This is shocking.
Do you know a small town in Oyo state called Igbo-ora has the highest number of twins birth in the world? And is strongly believed the yam diet quite common in that area explains why they have highest twin birth rate in the whole world. As a matter of fact, The BBC as at 2001 released an article on this.
As far back as many years ago, gynecologist from the University of Lagos Teaching Hospital did a research into this and the conclusion suggested the higher yam diet was probably the most likely explanation for it. Fascinating isn’t it……”.
