Do You Have Weak Red Blood Cells? Are You Anemic?

This past spring I was totally nuts for ice. I would eat cup after cup of ice, chewing, crunching and annoying everyone around me. I couldn’t help it. I just craved ice and I couldn’t get enough. I didn’t think this was particularly strange. I just thought that I had developed a habit, a bad habit at that. However, when I went in for my yearly check-up, I was surprised to find that my iron levels were very low and craving ice was a symptom of anemia.

Gender Role Reversals at the Gym

Being a female my entire life, I have never really understood what goes on in the minds of males. I have gained a little understanding having to live with five males, but I’m afraid I may never really grasp the strange things that testosterone makes them do.

There is no end to always trying to out-do each other.
