The birth rate of twins has reached the highest level in the world
London: The birth rate of twins has reached the highest level in the world, one out of every 40 children is born of twins.
According to a study published in the scientific journal Human Reproduction, 1.6 million twins are born worldwide each year. One of the reasons for the increase in twin births is the use of technology during reproductive processes in developed countries.
The use of reproductive technology (ART) has grown exponentially since the 1970s.
According to research, the rate of twins is also increasing as women get pregnant in old age. Older women are more likely to have twins.
Christian Mondin, a professor at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, says the number of twins is the highest in the world since the middle of the twentieth century.
The results of this study are based on data from 135 countries between 2010 and 2015.
According to research, the number of births of twins is the highest in Africa.
The rise in twin births in poor countries is a cause for concern for researchers, who say more attention needs to be paid to twins born in low-income countries.
The study’s author, Jerin Smits, says that in sub-Saharan Africa, one in two twins die each year, the first two to three thousand babies.
