How do I prevent toxoplasmosis infection?

Toxoplasmosis prevention

A single infection normally ensures immunity. Serious infection by toxoplasmosis can be effectively prevented by the avoidance of raw meat and by ensuring that all rare-cooked meats are heated throughout to at least 600 C (1400 F).
Contact with infected or unfamiliar cats and cat feces should be avoided, and the cat litter box should be emptied every day, because the oocytes in cat feces do not become infective until two to four days after excretion.
