What type of yams are those - that would help clarify this question. In the Collonies we call things such as these (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yam_%28vegetable%29) yams. They have an orange inside. That picture looks like parsnips with their top cut off. (ouch!)

Short of IVF procedures, I doubt multiple pregnancies/births are encouraged by Western Medicine. Highly unlikely that there was a western medication to encourage multiple births.

In Australia, they have recently made multiple implants during IVF undesirable.
