I decided to put this one here instead of HEALTH forum since some of the causes are not health related.

Tuberculosis in Texas? Is it something to do with the oil industry?

What can you say?

I would have guessed, for Texas, Lethal Injection.

A lot of those are void for vagueness. Like "symptoms, signs, and other abnormal findings, not otherwise specified." WTF does that mean? Nothing, is what it means.

I do find it interesting that syphillis is the #1 cause of death in Louisiana and AIDS is #1 in Florida.
