This guys fake muscles could be a major issue!
The average person has no idea what a person like this is actually injecting into his muscles. The substance is called synthol. To make this easy to understand, it’s basically an oil that stays in your muscles. It is extremely dangerous, and it can cause death by causing internal infections.
A bodybuilder inspired by the Incredible Hulk is risking his life by injecting oil into his arms in a bid to make his muscles bigger. Beefcake Valdir Segato’s huge biceps measure a staggering 23 inches as a result of painful synthol injections. The 48-year-old’s arms have doubled in size from 12in after he began injecting the potentially lethal oil substance five years ago – and now he wants to get even bigger. Valdir, from Sao Paulo, Brazil, is inspired by the physiques of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Hulk and is proud to be known locally as ‘He-Man’ and ‘the monster’ in the street.
