In brief: I disagree!

While r aw oysters may carry certain viruses, most are carefully monitored.
Cooked oyesters do not have this issue. Oysters contain more zinc than any other food, and zinc is the most important mineral for a strong immune syndrome. It has been shown that zinc helps ra, but several invesitgators, including peter simpkin, md at the university of washington. The 3-omegas help, too!

In brief: Possibly

Due to an increased risk of some infections from eating oysters, those with weak immune systems including people with rheumatoid arthritis on certain medications are recommended to avoid eating them.
