Here is input from one FAQ Farmer: * Well, yes and no. Pica is usually a result of your body craving something that it lacks. For example, I had a really bad iron deficency that I ignored, I would always crave ice, I'd just go to the freezer and get it all the time. It went away once I started taking iron pills. Some people with iron deficencies will crave clay or dirt too. Well, all of the ladies in my family have or have had problems with their iron levels so that I inherited, but I was the only one who would crave and eat ice all the time. Thank goodness it wasn't clay or dirt!
