Breast-enlarging yam 
Terengganu Mentri Besar Ahmad Said was once ridiculed for saying that Asiatic 
Bitter Yam (Dioscorea Hispida), locally called Ubi Gadong, contains the right 
steroid to turn a woman voluptuous and called for in-depth research on the 
common potato species.

After a year, Ahmad proved his critics wrong as research revealed that this yam 
is an excellent source of beta-carotene and diosgenin, a powerful phytochemical 
that aids in optimal breast enlargement.

This yam also contains phytoestrogens that are associated with relief from 
menopausal symptoms.

"People made a mockery of me, labelling me all sort of names when I said that 
this yam that is found in abundance here benefits women and could be 
commercialised if proper research is done on its health properties.

"I am glad that finally a local university has came forward to have research 
conducted on the health properties of this yam," he said during the signing of 
MOU between Universiti of Sultan Zainal Abidin and Terengganu Government to 
spearhead the study on the yam.

The MOU was sealed between state government represented by State Secretary 
Datuk Mazlan Ngah and the university that was represented by its 
vice-chancellor Datuk Prof Dr Alias Daud.
With the M.O.U, the state government will provide a grant of RM2mil to the 
varsity for research and development on the yam.
