Alan Carr fears developing rickets after adopting a vegan diet.
The malnourished comic stopped eating meat after buying a farm in Kent and developed anemia as a result.
“I don’t have folic acid,” he explains. “I’m on this vegan diet.
“I basically get rickets because I love animals.”
Rickets, a bone disease, can be caused by a lack of calcium or vitamin D. “I don’t eat cows because we have cows,” says Alan. “We’re saving alpacas, sheep, chickens, dwarf goats – it’s a real money pit.
“They are ungrateful – we save these animals and they always give dirty looks.”
