  • Chewing ice is not good for your teeth. Not only is craving ice a possible syptom of anemia, you're wearing down the enamel and exposeure to extreme cold and then the heat from your mouth can crack the stressed enamel.

    • :( makes sense. I'm not anemic though, actually the opposite, but i do love crunching on ice time to time. It may be a sign that I'm lacking something though

    • Exactly. Maybe you should talk with you doctor and get tested.

    • You're right. I need to. Thank u very much <3
