Doctors are trying to unravel the mystery of an Indian village producing 250 sets of twins born to just 2,000 families. The phenomenon has seen almost six times as many twins born than the global average in the remote village of Kodinhi, in Kerala, India.
In the last five years alone up to 60 pairs of twins have been born, with the rate of twins increasing year-on-year. Local doctor and twin enthusiast Dr Krishnan Sribiju has been studying the medical marvel of Kodinhi for the past two years. Doctors feel it has something to do with what they eat and drink.
