Legend: Drinking the water from these two wells will give birth to twins!
There are as many as a thousand pairs of twins that have been counted. There is such a saying in the local area that the well water that often drinks the two wells in the village will produce twins, so there are many tourists who come here every day to get water and tourists.
It is understood that the total number of villages in Hexi Village in the southwest of the county is 131, with a resident population of more than 500, and there are more than ten pairs of twins in the village. The wells in the village have been around for hundreds of years. Maintain the water needed for local people to live and produce.
The two wells here are also called Yinjing and Yangjing respectively. They say that they want to have a girl to drink the water in the Yinjing. If they want to have a boy, they will drink the water from the Yangjing. If they want to have twins, Drink the water in the two wells together!
A villager said that after the development of tourism, the popularity of the two wells has been rising, and now these two wells are already an attraction. Many tourists come to Mojiang for the simple purpose of drinking double water, and even some newlyweds come to Mojiang to live. Some tourists joked and said that they drank back to give birth to twins.
Experts have over-sampled and tested the well water. The indicators tested are in line with the national drinking water standards. They only contain more calcium and have no special substances. Some experts said that the incidence of local twins is high, mainly due to the unique geographical environment, biodiversity and ecological reasons of Mojiang, but this does not prove that twins are related to drinking well water. Still have to believe in the power of science!
I don’t know how you see this “well water" problem?
