  • TRUE! Weird, huh? I'm watching TLC and they asked this. Of course, I said FALSE! NOPE . . . it's true!

    Preliminary studies have shown that the skin of vegetables such as the yam contains a substance similar to the estrogen hormone which can cause multiple ovulations in a single cycle.

  • I will say FALSE because I eat them all the time and I don't have twins, even though my mom was a twin.
