2. Cândido Godói, Brazil – the town of twins
Cândido Godói, in Brazil, has about seven hundred twins in a population of 6,600! The myth goes that the notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, who had conducted twin “studies” in Germany and experimented with twins in Auschwitz, fled to South America as the Allies were closing in on the Nazi German regime. And he continued his experiments in Brazil. But the scientists have recently negated the story saying, a small number of immigrant families living in São Pedro may have brought the rogue gene to the region.
