“This time, ten years after my first set of twins, one of each.” I feel blessed, happy, and privileged to have five blessed children.
God, please let all the women out there who are still holding out hope and hoping for numerous miracles participate in this happiness. My Joy is well aware.My older child is God. At the ages of 30 and 40, I had two sons and one of each. Thank you, Father in heaven. Twis had recently been born, Margrethe noted, to Margaretha, an African Yorba tribeswoman. The Yorba tribe usually celebrates twin births because they view them as happy occasions. Twin births are more common among the Yorba people, who first appeared in Nigeria.
Twins, who are two children born from the same pregnancy, are a rather rare occurrence, and as a result, they are frequently viewed as unique.The prevalence of twins varies by location and nation around the world. The lowest rates are in Latin America and Southeast Asia, where there are only about 9 sets of twins for every 1,000 people. Approximately 16 twins are born in Europe for every 1,000 people, while 33 twins are born in the United States for every 1,000 people.
And that figure increases to roughly 18 to 30 sets of twins for every 1,000 individuals in central Africa. With over 50 sets of twins for every 1,000 live births, the Yoruba people of southwest Nigeria, however, have the highest number of twins in the entire globe.
And in Yorubaland, one town in particular appears to take the prize for the highest number of multiple s in the world.Igbo Ora, a sleepy agrarian town 80 kilometers from Lagos, is easily the twin capital of the world: unconfirmed estimates from the town say it boasts a mind-blowing 158 sets of twins for every 1,000 live s.
At the entrance to the town, visitors are welcomed with a large plinth, which proudly celebrates its reputation as “the land of twins.”
While there is no clear-cut scientific explanation for the high incidence of twins in the towns surrounding Yorubaland, fertility experts speculate that the consumption of a particular variety of yam, which contains a natural phytoestrogen thought to stimulate a woman’s ovaries to release eggs from both sides, may play a role.
However, the locals and inhabitants of Igbo Ora claim that their mainstay, which consists of yam and okra plant leaves, is the cause of their many s.
We consume a lot of okra leaf or llasa soup, a community leader claimed in an interview from 2013 (translated). We consume a lot of yam as well, and these diets affect many things.One could hardly enter a home in Igbo Ora, Oyo State, without encountering a pair of twins. According to the natives, a type of okra leaves known as ewe ilasa has the power to induce twin pregnancies in women who consume it. After visiting the town, Taiwo Abiodun wrote about the occurrence.
