This Indian holy man has become a laughing stock after telling a conference full of gynaecologists that mums with opposite-sex twins produce different types of milk from each breast.
Holy man Jaggi Vasudev – also known as Sadhguru – has become the target of jokes since the footage from 2017 emerged on social media and went viral this week.
He was a guest speaker at the gynaecologist conference and the footage was posted by the Twitter account @IndianAtheists.
It wrote: "When a woman delivers twins, one breast will produce one type of milk and the other will produce another type of milk' – Actual quote from Jaggi. This guy is invited to the national conference of gynaecologists as a speaker.”

During the conference, the 62-year-old guru used the point to illustrate his earlier claims that human bodies have in-built intelligence.
He used the example that a mum's body can produce different types of milk for different-sex twins used as a case in point – but did not reveal how she would know which breast was for the boy and which breast was for the girl.
Despite the Twitter humour of the subject, local media reported that some studies suggest that the guru may be correct.
They quoted a study by Prof Katie Hinde from Harvard University that showed rhesus monkeys male babies get 35% more fat and protein.
But, when mothers fed female babies although there was less fat there was more calcium.
Other reports highlighted researchers at Michigan State University who claimed that mothers in rural Kenya with sons generally gave richer milk to their male offspring – 2.8% fat compared with 1.4% for daughters.

However, despite local media support for the guru, critics note he is well known for his outlandish remarks.
The spiritual leader previously claimed that food cooked during an eclipse tastes different before and afterwards because after the eclipse it contains poison and deteriorates far more quickly.
He has also claimed in the past that cows know when somebody in their owner's household has died and will cry for them.
Sadhguru established the Isha Foundation involved in spiritual, educational and environmental activities in 1992 and has a YouTube channel with over 4 million followers.
