Blood Clams

China’s waters contain a species of clams called blood clams or blood cockles — and if the name didn’t scare you enough, the clams' diet should: Because blood clams live in low-oxygen environments, they ingest a lot of viruses and bacteria, including Hepatitis A and Hepatitis E, among others.
