As I am told (and want to believe) the risk from oysters is hepatitis, but eating them with a really hot sauce (heavily laced with tabasco) or any alcoholic beverage over 10% alcohol will defeat the hepatitis.
Years ago I was in Houston negotiating a deal. In the evening both sides of the deal went to the now defunct San Jacinto Inn, a wooden structure on the Houston Ship Channel. I ate so many fried oysters that I dreamt all night about eating oysters. When I awoke my pillow was gone. ;-)
