    Unhealthy? I mean, they could chip your teeth and cause bloating and discomfort in your stomach, maybe that's what she meant? But not really anything else.

    Only if you constantly chew it because it's rough on the teeth but other than that it's perfectly fine because it's just water and everyone needs that.

    it wont do your body any harm, but you will damage your teeth

    people who eat a lot of ice are supposed to be short of certain vitimins, maybe you should get a blood test from your doc, or try taking a daily multi-vitimin

    Ask your dentist.  I'd bet the dentist says you could damage your teeth that way.

    Diet Ice Cubes maybe.  Maybe bad on the teeth when you crunch them.  lol

    It's healthy to eat them in the sense of "letting them melt into liquid water."  What ISN'T healthy is chewing on ice cubes - you could break a tooth.  It's fine to chew on ice CHIPS, though.
