"Na xyz I do, I no kill person."

We hear this a lot and it's all well and good. On the other hand, there are some innocent-looking habits that can negatively impact our health.

Here's a #thread of 7 such habits to watch out for (and avoid).
We all have peculiar quirks that aren’t necessarily ‘bad’ & definitely can’t qualify as criminal acts. At most, they’ll annoy people close to you and that would be all.

But what if we view these quirks with health lenses? Would you still want to indulge? Our bet is no.
1. Nail biting
Eww… Not only can this damage your teeth and the skin around your nail bed, it can also lead to infection. You also may get more colds and other illnesses when you put your fingers, which often carry germs, into your mouth.

Do you know that some pregnant women chew weird stuff like ice, chalk, clay or even sand? This can be due to a condition called ‘Pica’ which is sometimes seen as a symptom of iron deficiency anaemia.

Here's how to prevent it.
There are various kinds of anaemia but iron deficiency anaemia is the most common.

When a woman is pregnant, there is a 30-50% increase in her blood volume to support her and the foetus. This in turn, decreases her blood’s haemoglobin concentration.
Since the body needs iron to make haemoglobin, red blood-cell production slows without sufficient iron.

This is why a pregnant woman’s daily iron requirement increases to 27mg from around 13mg as there is always a higher risk of iron deficiency anaemia during pregnancy.
