I actually used to have anemia off and on while I was in high school and college. The fact is...growing up, I was never taught to "eat". I actually didn't even realize that I DID have to eat, to survive...I knew it, but I didn't realize how directly food became our bodies. I became anemic because I was eating caffeteria food...
