It shows which parts of the world use the word "coke", "soda", or "pop".

I think I'd like to suggest a corollary to this neat piece of geographical data. How about putting this data alongside a map of the prevalence of diabetes mellitus type 2 per country?  Notice how Malaysia, Indonesia, and Philippines are filled up with red dots? While most of Africa and China are spared? Would the prevalence of both disease and soft drink actually have a correlation? That'd be something awesome!
