In brief: PICA

Pica occurs not only in children and pregnant women but to persons who suffers from iron- deficiency anemia.
Some patients continue to have pica even if they are aware that it is not healthy to consume non- nutritive substances such as clay, ice, paint, etc. So it is not rare.

In brief: Very Rare

Pica is a rare problem. It is most likely to occur in kids, and even then it is pretty rare.
