Factoid #3,007,432: Make of this what you will, but there is always a co-relation. These are 2 maps, the blue and grey one illustrates the State by State per capita passport ownership and the red/orange/yellow illustrates the prevalence of diabetes, which in some areas has reached almost epidemic status.
You could overlay the maps and compare the results, but it is more than a bizarre coincidence that the areas with the lowest per capita ownership of passports has the highest diabetes incidence.
I have to thank MikeB2000 for the suggestion to check out the gun ownership and death by fire arms stats...incredibly, but perhaps not so incredibly, another indisputable co-relationship...are we on to something here?
