6 Alabama Cities With Extremely High Syphilis Rates
I'm in no way happy to be delivering this news.
Once again Alabama tops some sort of list. Unfortunately this time it's not the type of list we would like.
Somehow we managed to put 6 Alabama cities in the top 100 with the highest spread of STDs.
And if that's not bad enough, we managed to get one city into the top 10. Definitely not the top 10 I ever want to see.
STDs don't discriminate. Both men and women spread STDs at a similar rate. Sometimes unknowingly.
Here are some different types of STDs, just in case some of us didn't know.
Here are your 6 Alabama cities that unfortunately made this list.

What are we doing people?
Are we just too broke to buy a condom?
Do we just not care?
Maybe it's Covid?
Whatever it is, please stay safe out there.
These STDs are no picnic. Some are painful and burn. Some you will have for the rest of your life. And most importantly some will kill you.
