Are you familiar with the saying 'When in Baltimore, try the crabs"?  Well, that saying takes on a whole new meaning with this recent study.

The Center for Disease Control just released a study on cities and how they rank in STD cases. Most of the cases involved chlamydia and gonorrhea. Syphilis and HIV accounted for just a fraction of the cases.


The Number one city in the U.S. for STD's is Baltimore.  Out of every 100,000 people, there were 2004 cases of an STD reported. The rest of the top 10 cities for STD's came in like this. Jackson, Mississippi....Philadelphia.... San Francisco... Montgomery, Alabama... Augusta, Georgia.... Milwaukee... Killeen, Texas... Shreveport, Louisiana and Indianapolis.

Minneapolis came in at a semi respectable  #73.

Three of the smallest cities listed in the top 1000 all had one thing in common. They all have large military bases.
