The Land of Lincoln has been on many great lists and some not so great. This is one of those not so great lists. In fact, it's quite disgusting.

When trying to look at this list distinction positively, there's really only one thing:

At least Illinois isn't #1.

According to the Center for Disease Control's data and Roadsnack's study of which states have the highest STD infection rates compared to population. Illinois is one of the Top 10 States Where You're Likely To Catch An STD.

And Illinois is the only Midwestern state too.
