Hi all,

I'm currently in school for my BS in Biology, and then on to PA school, and looking to move down there when all down. I was reading the post on Dengue and became interested in some of the other illnesses down there. Ciguatera was very interesting to read about, is there anything else that is common down there.

Thanks,
Jeff

I believe that both dengue and ciguatera are found in the mainland US. They are subtropical-tropical diseases, though. Most common diseases here are hypertension and diabetes.

I would say the most common disease here is alcoholism. 🙁

Diabetes and hypertension would be in the running, too!
