A deficiency? Dang. I suppose you're right, 'cause I haven't been eating too many veggies these days...
a change in diet or malnutrition will usually cause them to yellow.. or produce ridges or bumps in the nails.... different medications are good at causing that too.

Phew...nothing like that yet. *goes and stuffs a bunch of carrots down*

Now be nice Xev, besides your definition, where ever you got it from is not strictly correct in a clinical sense.
A: Fetishes can involve the use of a living object or part of a living being such as the feet, hair, breast etc. Some people just prefer to cause it a partialism becuase of the stigma associated with the word fetish. They only become a fetish if they disrupt your life. So, if you like to suck someones toes, say, but can still have a perfectly good relationship, a good social life and a good work life then you really do not have a fetish, you just enjoy another part of your partners body. But if you must see your co-workers feet, go around accosting people and stealing shoes, then you have a fetish and some real problems.
B: Yes fetishes can be used to described a non-sexual object but thats whole different subject altogether and is more related to religon.
Bluesoulrobot: nah I can't but I knew a girl who could. It used to gross me out all the time.
I'm horrified just reading this.
Archwriter, it's the CLINICAL definition. It's straight from the DSM-III.
I need not point out the irony of claiming that the diagnostic standard is not correct in a clinical sense.
jello, protein, and pre-natal vitamins.... (as well as regular manicures).. oh.. and that annoying way people click their nails on the table.... stimutlates blood flow, so that should getchya somewhere....
make sure you always file your nails tward the middle.. never the otherway or they could become ingrown ETC. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Xev I can't believe you quoted this. Give me a private message if you want to follow this up, otherwise I couldn't be bothered.
