Did Nazi 'Angel of Death' tamper with Brazilian town?

There's a town in Brazil, Candido Godoi, that has a very high rate of twin births. A normal population in the region has around 1.8 percent twin births. But Candido Godi has 10. Pretty crazy. (All of this according to a report at New Scientist)

What's crazier is the many of the twins have blond hair and blue eyes. Remember, we're talking the Brazillian countryside here.

Oh, Nazi mad scientist / 'Angel of Death' Joseph Mengele made regular trips to the area. Could it all be a coincidence? Probably.

First, the town was founded by German immigrants, which explains the blond hair and blue eyes. And all the twins? Inbreeding. "Genealogical analysis showed a high recurrence of multiple births within families, as well as a high level of inbreeding within the community."

I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
