What in the hell.
A Brazilian man who became a social media star for his absurd fake muscles that were the result of injecting himself with oil has died.
Valdir Segato had been using potentially fatal injections of Synthol for years, risking strokes and infections, to get huge biceps, pectorals and back muscles.
The New York Post reports, “Synthol usually consists of a mixture of oil, benzyl alcohol and lidocaine and can cause “a damage of nerves, oil embolic of the pulmonary, occlusion of the pulmonary artery, myocardial infarction, cerebral stroke and infectious complications,” according to Europe PubMed Central.”
Officials believe he died of a heart attack.
