The Awful Truth Is That Peaches Geldof Might Have Died As A Result Of Juice Cleansing

Peaches Geldof attending Samsung Galaxy launch September 2013When someone dies at as young an age as twenty-five year old Peaches Geldof tragically did yesterday, there are bound to be questions of foul play involved. Particularly since her own mother Paula Yates died of an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, speculation was rife on the internet that drugs had been a contributing factor in Peaches’ death as well.

But even though we don’t have autopsy results to refer to, Kent Police are insisting that the tragic death was both ‘sudden’ and ‘unexplained’, given that no illegal drugs or suicide note was found in the investigation. Which leaves us back at square one, grasping at straws to get some idea of what happened. And one of those straws happens to be the theory that juice cleansing may have contributed to her death.

I didn’t realize this until today, but apparently Peaches was known for adhering to an extremely strict, almost fanatical diet, often subsisting on three juice-only meals a day for up to a month. At least according to a 2011 interview she gave to OK Magazine:

“I do diet – 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. I have no will-power but with the juicing I’m like: ‘I have to do it because I have to lose this extra ten pounds.’ I’ll lose it and then I’m back going mental for the chips. I juice and then I eat chips.”

Okay, so what she’s describing there is binging and purging, right?

“Sometimes it’s hard. If you open any high-fashion magazine, the girls in it are stick-thin and then they’ve been air-brushed down to the point where it’s just like, ludicrousness. I have days when I wake up and think: ‘I’m so fat.’”

And given that I’ve seen photos of Peaches from around then and she’s decidedly not fat, this could be read as body dysmorphia, right? Man, that’s terrifying, especially in light of her death and the fact that a British nutritionist spoke out at the time, trying to draw attention to the fact that Peaches’ diet was not only unhealthy, but unsafe.

“Surviving on fruit is a very dangerous diet. Peaches is at high risk of electrolyte abnormalities which could lead to acute cardiac arrest. It is what kills anorexics.”

Well there you have it. The exact nightmarish thought that’s been in my head all day. We still don’t have any answers, but the fact that this is a plausible theory is horrifying.

      What do you think of this blind gossip? http://blindgossip.com/?p=61625#more-61625 think it’s Peaches and COS? I do but I really hope it’s not true because that’s just tragic.

      • Kaitlin Reilly

        That’s really interesting. I knew she was a member but I didn’t consider the connection… hopefully it isn’t true.

      • elle

        Yep, I didn’t either til I saw the blind. But I’ve also read she was no longer practicing scientology but was involved in OTO (which her husband has also been linked to) so who knows what the truth is? It’s probably terrible of me to speculate anyway. All I know is I liked Peaches, she seemed to be a devoted mother, and dropping dead at 25 is tragic.

        Whoahhhhh that’s crazy. All the clues seem to suggest it.

      Is it possible that Peaches Geldof lived two very distinct lives. One for the public, feeding off her family’s glam and notoriety and one for herself where she reeled from it in self sabotage which included extreme dieting and a predilection towards anorexia?

      And yet the biggest irony is the fact that few noticed or spoke up because it was Peaches Geldorf job to appropriate herself, look the part of a rock idol myth, even if it literally meant killing herself for it…..lose 50 pounds in weeks, easy…or is it?

      Alexis Rhiannon, your past as a teenage jailbait slut that sucked on the penises of much older men while placing said penises in your underage orifices aside, why do you always post such non-sense? Peaches Geldof died from being too HEALTHY?!! Give me a break! Peaches Geldof was a well-known drug addict that started doing heroin as a young teen, almost as young as when you were smoking old guys’ penises like they were Cohibas. Quit writing this trash!

        Thank you for this precious gift of a comment. Your empathy for others is truly staggering.

        I think you’re confused on the definition of healthy if you think surviving on three glasses of juice a day was living healthy.

        What the fuck is this.
