The riskiest places in the U.S. when it comes to HIV — an interesting map. I'm willing to bet most would think California would have been riskier than Texas or Florida.

You can get HIV anywhere, depending on what you're doing, with whom you're doing it, if you're on PrEP, if you're using condoms and pure luck, but the map is nonetheless a sobering reminder of that fact:

The Top 10 Riskiest Cities for HIV

  1. Baton Rouge, LA - 44.7
  2. Miami - 42.8
