Why Eat Oysters?

They make you a better writer. Hey, it seemed to work for Hemingway.

They make you love longer, or so they say. Oysters are full of zinc, and men and women deficient in zinc suffer from loss of libido.

They keep you out of the doctor’s office. That zinc that is supposed to help your sex drive is also good for your immune system.

They help keep you trim. An oyster’s fat content is less than two percent. (That’s pretty good for a creature that lounges around while waiting for its food to be delivered.)

They help buff you up. Raw oysters have an easily digestible protein content of nine percent.

They help build strong bones. Oysters are a natural source of minerals including calcium, copper and iron.

They keep you healthy. Oysters are full of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which keep your arteries young and your brain in good working order.

They are ecologically friendly. Shellfish such as clams, mussels and oysters are among the most sustainable choices of seafood and are rated consumer’s “best choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program.

They're a delicious way to enjoy the favorite food of early and modern cultures.
