i have heard that, here's an article from the mayo clinic about it. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/chewing-ice/AN01278
it is not known specifically why, but there is a very close connection.

it could be from dehydration, but there is a definite link between ice chewing and being anemic. you were asking why people make that association, implying that it is a old wives' tale. it also said that it could be to relieve symptoms due to the anemia.....maybe you also have those symptoms but from a different cause. then again maybe you just like to chew ice because of the texture or coldness. it doesn't mean all people who chew ice are anemic, it said that most anemic people like to chew ice. there's a difference.
