Can you eat cucumbers with mosaic virus?

So I don't have any pics here but I'm pretty sure my cucumber plants have gotten the evil mosaic virus. A few of the vines have started to dry up, and the remaining leaves and fruits have a mottled yellow spotted appearance. I think I have already eaten a few of them, even though they looked kinda spotty. I haven't died yet, but, should I refrain from eating the ones I have left?

Also, should I be pulling these vines out so it doesn't spread to nearby beans and pepper plants? I'm thinking maybe I should and plant some fall peas in their place...
