A Man’s Desire for Bigger Biceps Makes Him to Inject Himself with Oil
People will almost do anything to get the physique that they want? They will go to the gym for hours, lift heavy weights, or maybe even use steroids. But will they inject themselves with oil? Maybe not! But this “Maybe not!” answer was not the answer for Valdir Segato, a recovering drug addicted 48-year-old Brazilian construction worker who began to inject himself with synthol, a lethal oil substance five years ago. What was his goal? His objective was to increase his twelve-inch biceps to 27 inches. His plan proved successful for now his biceps measure an astounding 23 inches. His motivation is Arnold Schwarzenegger and fictional characters like The Hulk.
Surprisingly, although his biceps are already huge at 23 inches, Segato still wants to make them bigger. He also has two muscle-looking stones behind his neck, giving him the appearance of a huge monster-looking thing. Against the advice of his doctors, he continues to inject oil in his muscles. Not to mention, regardless of the warnings that he faces serious problems with these oil injections, including amputation, he insists on continuing his pursuit to enlarge his biceps even more through the injections of the oil. So the remaining question is, “How safe is synthol oil injections?” The answer is, “Not safe at all.” Let’s get into oil synthol in more detail.
