  • it depends on if they are cooked or not. i'd say definitely NOT raw because there has been so many cases of food poisoning.

    check with your doctor.

  • Supposedly oysters can cause you to go into labor. I'm sure it's just a myth though, I don't like any seafood though so I wouldn't know. I think you are only supposed to stay away from fish that contain mercury. Ask your doctor to be sure though.
