    On a hot day, nibbling on ice chips may be just
    the way to beat the summertime heat. For some, however, eating ice is a compulsion.
    If you find your kids eating too much ice, or feel you cannot stop them eating
    ice, it may be brought on by an iron deficiency to them. Whatever their reason
    to for eating ice, know that it is generally safe to do but can result in some
    unhealthy side effects if it hits your kids teeth in the wrong way or is done
    too often or over a long period of time. Also it may result to following
    maneuvers, you may bite down too hard on a piece of ice and chip or break a
    tooth. Breaking a tooth can be painful and cause permanent damage. Eating ice can also cause bleeding gums. When ice
    is broken up by the teeth, it can fracture in unusual ways and cause sharp
    edges along the sides of the ice cube. Broken and sharp ice cubes can cause
    harm to the gums by accidentally stabbing the sides of the gums or jabbing into
    the area where the tooth meets the gums. While it appears far-fetched,
    consuming too much water can result in a serious condition called “hyponatremia”
    which translates from its Greek and Latin roots to “insufficient salt in
    the blood.” Ice is made from water, and too much water in the system in a
    short amount of time can cause serious health risks. One result could be
    overworking the kidneys, which puts them at risk of shutting down.
