Zhanna Samsonova also known as Zhanna D'Art is a Russian-based vegan raw food influencer for at least the last 10 years, she use to describe herself as, “I eat simple food, although I have a lot of experience as a raw food chef. I love creating my own recipes and inspiring people to eat healthier.”
She use to just eat food items like fruits, sunflower seed sprouts, fruit smoothies, and juices, large sweet jackfruit and durian, spiky fruit with bad odour all of which she believed would lead her to optimum health.
But unfortunately, her diet turned deadly to her and passed away on July 21st, during her tour to Southeast Asia Zhanna’s health was worsening and one of her close friends also informed the same and seek medical treatment but she ignored it by saying she is fine.
After hearing this tragic news Samsonova’s friend shared with Newsflash, she said, “Zhanna’s idle stagnation was causing her to melt before our eyes, but she believed everything was fine. Only her eyes, merry eyes, and gorgeous hair compensated for the dreadful sight of a body tortured by idiocy. Forgive me if it sounds harsh.”
Also, the influencer’s mother disclosed to the Russian newspaper Vechernyaya Kazan that her daughter’s health worsened due to the added strain of malnutrition caused by her vegan diet and “cholera-like infection”. However, there’s no official statement about her cause of death.
Though Zhanna had good intentions and influenced her followers to stay healthy and eat well which might sometimes fall due to a lack of essential proteins and vitamins that are vital for maintaining good health. And not everyone’s body acts or works the same, so great planning, intense research and proper consultation with healthcare professionals must be required. While, sometimes raw foods can harbour harmful bacteria that may not be fully eliminated even after thorough washing, posing potential health risks.
