  • You can find some good info about it on wikipedia. But it really is something I would see a doctor about, it can be deadly if you crave to eat (and DO eat) some of the things I've heard of being craved.

  • It's not an eating disorder perse, but many pregnant women get it. It's when you eat things that are not considered food, and this includes ice. Ice is edible so I don't understand that, but it usually signifies a deficiency in certain nutrients, and foods.
