Double trouble

According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control, the birth of twins reached an all-time high in 2014--33.9 sets per 1,000 births. In 2013, it was 33.7.

Something in the water? Nah--more births to older women, who are more likely to have twins, and more couples using In Vitro Fertilization--which can result in multiples.

This makes it doubly important (like that one?) to get pre-natal care and take care of yourself if you are trying to get pregnant, meaning lots of dark greens for folic acid.

If you are not trying, well, you have been warned.
