Peaches Geldof’s extreme dieting at play in death?

April 9, 2014

While drugs or foul play have been ruled out in the tragic death of 25-year-old Peaches Geldof, there has been some speculation that her extreme dieting may have played a role. No official coroner’s report has been released, but Peaches was very public about her body image issues and struggles with weight loss.

“I have no will power but with the juicing I have to do it because I have to lose this extra 10 pounds,” the already petite Geldof previously said.

Health experts were critical of her diet, even saying it would put her at risk for cardiac arrest.

“Surviving on fruit is a very dangerous diet. Peaches is at high risk of electrolyte abnormalities, which could lead to acute cardiac arrest,” a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association had warned her.
