Don't drink the water

Talk about seeing double! According to this New York Times article, there are 38 pairs of living twins in a tiny Brazililan village called Candido Godoi and some believe the water supply may be the cause. The town's residents are really into the myth—there's even a statue of a woman holding twin infants and a night-lit "fertility spring." Due to the expense--not to mention the possibility of the town losing its claim to fame--Candido Godoi's water has never been tested. We're surprised the village isn't trying to export its water as a miracle infertility cure.
