Do you chew on ice? See a doctor!

Chewing Ice Anemia Iron Deficiency

Wow! In my random interweb surfings, I ran across an article about craving and chewing ice being related to health problems. Not frostbite or chipped teeth as you might expect, but iron deficiency anemia! It’s not sure why they crave ice, but studies show it’s true!

I used to chew crushed ice every day in high school. Not sure if I had any related health problems. I loved doing it and was always disappointed if they ran out of ice that day. I used to hear that people who chew ice are sexually frustrated. Did I mention I used to chew ice in high school?

    I chew Ice all the time, I chew it because it feels good on my teeth and its probablly my only source of water intake, besides what happens to get in my mouth when I am showering.

    Please chew ice in complete privacy. If you are doing this around others, believe me, the noise is repulsive and disgusting. Disbelief? Record yourself doing this and play it back for yourself.
