Is consuming blood bad?

I sometimes tear off my lips and a bit of blood comes out and I put my tongue on it and swallow it. It is a kind of habit.

    The Maasai tribe, of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, regularly drink cow blood and are very healthy. I'd be concerned about the transmission of disease however if I were to regularly ingest blood.

    As for a bit of your own blood, I wouldn't be concerned. It's the regular tearing of your lip that would be more concerning as a habit.

    A little bit won't hurt any.

    Swallowing small amounts of our own blood for various reason like a nosebleed for instance.

    It will do you no harm.
