Prions are heat resistant up to 900 F degrees.

To kill and destroy the Prions you must heat the Prions up to 900 F and above for at least 2 hours and then they will die and be destroyed.

Prions have the ability to survive temperatures of 900 F to 1000 F degrees for up to 2 hours.

So to kill the Prions and destroy the Prions you must keep the Prions heated to 900 F to 1000 F degrees for at least 2 hours.

The higher the heat the less time it takes for the Prions to die and be destroyed.

The temperature at which Prions are destroyed is 900 F and above.

To kill off and destroy Prions you need to heat the Prions up to 900 F and above for at least a few hours to fully destroy the prions.

Prions are unable to survive temperatures of 900 F and the higher the temperature the quicker the Prions are destroyed.

Prions are misfolded proteins that have the ability to transmit their misfolded shape onto normal variants of the same protein.

The Prions characterize several fatal and transmissible neurodegenerative diseases in humans and many other animals.

As long as the Prions are heated up enough then the Prions will be destroyed.
