A bodybuilder who wanted to look like the Incredible Hulk nearly lost his arm after injecting with oil.
Romario Dos Santos Alves, 25, used a concoction of oil, painkillers and alcohol with incredible results. Now he terrifies children with his super-size and faces serious health issues.
Narrating his experience using synthetic filler synthol, Romario said.
“If you take it once there will definitely be a second time – it’s addictive.I remember the doctor told me that they would need to amputate both arms – they said everything in there, all my muscles, were rock.
I want other people to see the dangers, I could have died all because I wanted bigger muscles. It’s just not worth it.”

He also recounted how he got introduced to the drug.
“I saw some really big guys in the gym with huge arms and I started to make friends with them.
“They introduced me to synthol and I got excited about the results – I lost control. My muscles started to solidify and I couldn’t even inject my arms – they were full of rocks,” he added.
“I decided the only thing I could do was buy specialist needles to inject.
