Vegetarianism causes broken arm in celebrity drummer
« on: October 05, 2006, 05:24:07 PM »
According to his publicist, Travis Barker broke his arm while shooting a video for his band +44's song "When Your Heart Stops Beating." A source close to Barker tells TMZ that he actually broke his arm drumming. Wow.

Doctors have ordered the former blink-182er to lay off the heavy lifting -- and drumming -- for at least 8 weeks.

UPDATE: Travis Barker has posted the following message on his MySpace account: "I had every test possible to see what was going on in my arm. The MRI/X-Ray showed I'd been playing with a broken arm for 3 weeks and or possible tumor in my arm ... I've been told to eat meat and change my diet (I've been a vegetarian for 16 years) cause it's making my bones weak. I never thought I'd break a bone from playing my drums too hard/too long."

Mm, it's easy to become malnutritioned with a vegetarian diet if one doesn't do some research and planning ahead.
