Baltimore Has Highest STD Rate In America. . . . Half The Top 100 Cities w/ Highest STDs In The South.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (C.D.C.) recently released data in its new Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report which recorded the number of sexually transmitted disease (STD) cases across U.S. counties and metro areas.

A company named Innerbody (working for CBS News) analyzed the latest statistics on a city-by-city basis and developed a list of the top 100 cities with the highest STD rates. And the results were shocking.

Media Take Out reviewed the data and what stood out was the fact that STD rates continue to run rampant in the South. Nearly half of the top 25 cities with the highest rates in the South.

But it wasn’t just the South that was burning. Media Take Out confirmed that California led all states with the most cities in the Top 100 – 7 cities in total.

Ohio and Texas tied for the second most cities, both of had six burning cities.Here is the full list – God help anyone who lives in one of them:
