Did Peaches Geldof die because of her extreme juice diet?
The sudden and tragic death of socialite Peaches Geldof remains an eerie mystery. According to police, The 25-year-old mom of two sons, Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen, most likely died of natural causes. No evidence of a drug overdose or possible suicide has been found. So what would make a woman this young die suddenly? Well some are suspecting that her extreme juiced vegetables diet may have had something to do with it!

Police and investigators are still trying to figure out what could have led to Peaches' "unexplained sudden death." A possible drug overdose seems to be out of the question. According to her family, Peaches was sort of a wild child when she was younger but claim that after marrying her husband Thomas Cohen and especially after becoming a mother, left all the drugs behind her. Not to mention, her mother's heroin overdose left her emotionally scarred for life.
So what happened to this poor girl? Unfortunately, no one knows yet. Police are still investigating but her juice cleanse may have had a negative impact on her health. She actually told OK! Magazine back in 2011 that she was living off nothing but vegetable juice to help lose the baby weight she gained from giving birth to her two sons who are only 13 months apart. "I do juicing. You juice vegetables and then you drink it three times a day. It's gross. I do it usually for about a month," she said.
But what Peaches and a lot of people who go on these extreme cleanses don't realize is that they're actually really dangerous. "Surviving on fruit is a dangerous diet," Cath Colllins, a spokeswoman for the British Dietetic Association told the U.K.'s DailyMail back in 2011. "Peaches is at high risk electrolyte abnormalities which could lead to acute cardiac arrest. It is what kills anorexics." And she was starting to look way too skinny. Her odd diet could have caused her to go into cardiac arrest.
It's all so sad because this woman was young and left behind a husband and two beautiful little sons. It's also devastating because despite the fact that she tried not to take the same drug-abusing path as her heroin-addict mother, she still wound up losing her life. I just hope it wasn't all because of the juicing. Let's cross our fingers investigators get some answers soon!
