Parasites of many types, and how to eliminate them from foods so as to avoid unnecessary cooking, pose the Parasite Dilemma. The FDA's Bad Bug Book details several parasites, including amoebae or protozoa such as Giardia, Entamoeba, or Acanthamoeba and fish worms such as Cryptosporidium, Anisakis Simplex, Diphyllobothrium, Nanophyetus, or Eustrongylides.
