The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been measuring nationwide diabetes occurance and four years started releasing that data.  Since they started the number of cases has steadily risen.  Over at Slate, they turned that data into an interactive map that shows the most saturated places in America.  Some counties' diabetes percentage pushes into the upper teens.  Take a look at the map and consider that nearly twice as many African Americans suffer from diabetes than do white Americans.  Notice any patterns?
