    I read where Dr. Chia says that enteroviruses can be found in shellfish, any idea how to make sure that they are dead before you eat the shellfish?

    Cook them thoroughly. Raw seafood of any kind is a problem. Many parasites will be killed by pickling in lime juice, but I wouldn't risk that with a virus.

    Most seafood has parasites. Not all can infect humans however. Its better to cook seafood. Places where eating raw fish is customary often has a high population of people with parasites. Lime juice is a traditional way of dealing with this, but I am unsure that the acid is sufficient. Heat permeates through any well cooked food. Viruses are vulnerable to heat.

    Use a food thermometer if in doubt. I am not sure the recommended temperature for seafood though, you might need to run a search. Most seafood however changes colour and consistency when cooked.
