The Brazilian bodybuilder is risking his life by injecting himself with OIL to raise his biceps to 23 centimeters
- Three years ago Valdir Segato was warned about his risky amputation with injections
- But he continued to use the dangerous oil to increase his colossal muscle mass
- The synthol brew often uses sesame oil, along with pain killers and alcohol
- But experts say it can cause fatal strokes, block blood vessels and infections
A Brazilian bodybuilder risks his life by injecting oil into his biceps, but continues to raise it to 23 inches.
Valdir Segato, early 50s, has been using synthol injections for years despite risky strokes and infections to produce colossal biceps, pectoral muscles, and back muscles.
Segato, from Sao Paulo, is inspired by the physique of Arnold Schwarzenegger and fictional characters like The Hulk and is proud to be known locally as & # 39; the monster & # 39; in the street.
Three years ago he was warned that he was experiencing amputation, but nerve damage and muscle deformity are of limited magnitude for the deadly health risks he faces.
Valdir Segato, early fifties, uses oil injections that make his muscles appear massive, but the benefits are purely cosmetic

Segato, a construction worker, said in 2016: & They always call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger and He-Man and I like that. I have doubled my biceps, but I still want to be taller. & # 39;
Today, he proudly places images and video & # 39; s on social media, putting himself & # 39; Valdir Synthol & # 39; mentions on Instgram.
As a youth, he was an emaciated skinny drug addict and lost so much weight that he was known as & # 39; skinny dog & # 39 ;.
He said before: & # 39; I got involved with drugs and I started to lose weight because you don't eat, you lead a wrong life. & # 39;
Segato stopped taking drugs and joined a gym, but he wanted more extreme effects than just training.
He was offered synthol by someone in the gym and, with an addictive personality, soon became addicted to the muscle-strengthening substance.

Many bodybuilders ignore the long list of side effects of anabolic steroids by opting for synthol, but the oil also entails high risks.
According to Europe PubMed Central: & # 39; The side effects of synthol are numerous and can also cause nerve damage, embolism of the lung, occlusion of the pulmonary artery, heart attack, cerebral infarction and infectious complications. & # 39;
The injections consist of 85 percent oil – often sesame oil is used – 7.5 percent lidocaine, a painkiller and 7.5 percent alcohol, used to sterilize the brew.
Moreover, the results are purely cosmetic and do not make Segato stronger.
Three years ago he was warned that his continued use could cause amputation.

His wrinkling back muscles around his neck – the injections can cause nerve and muscle damage and he has refused to listen to warnings of amputation.
His friend Fernando Carvalho da Silva then said: & The oil thing is stupidity. He likes it and I am a friend, so I stay calm, but deep down I want to tell him to stop, but he doesn't want it. He's so happy.
& # 39; It's the risk he takes – he wants to look good and become famous. & # 39;
Segato said at the time: & # 39; The doctors tell me to stop it, the advice they give me is to stop using it. But it's my decision to use it because I want it, because I like it. & # 39;
