Bruising and open wounds are extremely common injuries throughout the U.S., but which injury is the most uniquely common Colorado (i.e., which injury disproportionately strikes your state's residents more than those in any other state)?
Amino pored over scores of medical data to determine which injuries are most peculiar to all 50 states...
As for Colorado and just about every state around us... Suffocation. This includes Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, and New Mexico. WHY? What the heck are we doing in this area that would cause so many people to suffocate? ODD!!
Some of the other highlights include:
Florida: head injury
Oklahoma: rotator cuff sprain
Texas: insect bite
Alabama & Mississippi: chest injury
Missouri: animal bite
Indiana: struck by object
New Jersey & Maryland: sprained hand
North Dakota & Nebraska: Overexertion
Oregon: sprained back
