link to a Telegraph article about a remote Brazilian village with, in Miss Cellania's words, a "bazillion Brazilian" twins. Now Candido Godol will be the subject of an upcoming documentary in a National Geographic's Explorer program.
The statistics are jaw-dropping: 44 pairs of twins in 80 families in a 1.5-square-mile area - a rate 1000% above the global average. Some scientists attribute this to a "founder effect" since many of these Brazilians are descendants of German immigrants who clustered in this remote outback area. Others wonder about environmental contamination or simple chance. The National Geographic program will apparently focus on the more tabloid-worthy "Joseph Mengele-was-here" hypothesis.
