Want Twins? Eat Dairy Products

From DNA World -- "Want twins? Take milk and eat dairy products, a new study says. The rate of twin births in the United States rose by more than 75 per cent between 1980 and 2003.

Some of this can be explained by the use of fertility treatments, which ups the risk of multiple births. But that can't explain the entire jump, researchers said.

Bearing twins is more risky for both mother and child than having a single baby. So scientists wanted to know what's causing the rise."

"Gary Steinman of the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York carried out a simple comparison: he gathered together childbearing records for more than 1,000 vegan women who do not eat any animal products. He calculated that vegans were around five times less likely to bear twins than omnivorous women or vegetarians who eat dairy food, Nature magazine said."
