I recall a TV article a year or so ago that involved a drinking 'dare' - eating a raw slug/snail. I believe a twenty-something died as a result of contracting rat lung worm. (Snails and slugs eat rat crap and become infected.)

See:

So, as noted by many of the posts above - thoroughly purge and cook snails before eating them. Better still, farm them yourself and still thoroughly cook 'em.
