I have heard that ice chewing was related to iron deficiency, but I wasn't sure if it was true until I came to this site. I cannot believe how many people that are anemic who chew ice! I am also anemic, but I just thought it was a coincidence. I love chewing ice, especially cubes that have holes in them, or the flat cubes that some fast food retaurants have. I also love the ice that come in bags, but it has to be fresh and clear. I have tried to just suck on the ice because I know chewing cannot be good for my teeth, but I just can't do it. I notice that I do that with any hard type of food I put in my mouth (such as candy). I cannot put a jolly rancher in my mouth without immediately chewing on it. Forget about suckers,..they are useless for me. I wonder if there is a correlation between that and ice chewing too? Anyone else like this?
