The most-Googled disease in each state

One thing people have in common throughout the U.S. is how often they Google search HPV, according to TermLife2Go.

The frequency of searches for HPV far surpasses searches for the country's most deadly disease (heart disease), which was among the most common searches only in Maine. 

TermLife2Go, an independent agency that researches life insurance companies, used Google Trends to compile a list of the most-Googled disease in each state based on search popularity.
