My friend just posted a topic on craving soap and detergent....but my craving is raw meat and the blood inside it....does anyone know what causes me to crave that? Has anyone else craved this?
Wow.. never craved that one before. Have you eaten it?
Haha. Topic stealer. :P
My friend craved raw meat and I think her doctor said it was something to do with iron. I'm not 100% sure though.
it means your missing something that your body needs (something you can get in the blood) ive craved the smell (weird i know) but there is a thing where people crave dirt ashes all that stuff because theyre lacking in something
eeek that would scare the hell outta me :shock:

I'm going to say, that might be iron since there is iron in blood. Try eating more iron rich foods and see if that helps take the edge off the craving.
Pica is a medical disorder characterized by an appetite for largely non-nutritive substances (e.g., coal, soil, feces, chalk, paper, soap, ash, etc.) or an abnormal appetite for some things that may be considered foods, such as food ingredients (e.g., flour, raw potato, starch, ice cubes). In order for these actions to be considered pica, they must persist for more than one month at an age where eating such objects is considered developmentally inappropriate. The condition's name comes from the Latin word for magpie, a bird which is reputed to eat almost anything. Pica is seen in all ages, particularly in pregnant women and small children, especially among children who are developmentally disabled, where it is the most common eating disorder.
Sorry for the long message, just thought I would pass along...:)
