Synthol Abuse – A Real Life Look
This stuff doesn’t even look convincing to the untrained eye.
This is Valdir Segato, a 48 year old from Sao Paulo Brazil, Valdir has clearly gone overboard with the oil injections (Synthol use) and now he looks like this.
But beneath it all, there has to be an underlying reason why somebody would take Synthol use this far.
Valdir goes on to talk about how he was teased and bullied as a young boy and called names.
“In his youth, he was addicted to drugs and lost so much weight that people would call him ‘skinny dog’ and ‘little skull.”
What is Synthol?
Synthol is a chemical enhancement oil which serious bodybuilders inject into their body parts to enhance the appearance of their muscles.
The idea is to use it to lift certain areas which may be a little less full or uneven so they look good for competitions.
The risks of Synthol overuse are widely known, overdoing it could lead to the skin bursting and leaving the user open to infections that can lead to amputation.
A simple google search of ‘synthol poisoning’ will return some harrowing images.
“At the moment, I am alone, I don’t have anyone. I do get attention, but people seem to be scared to approach me, I think that’s the problem.’”
It is Valdir’s goal to make a living from his physique, which means the Synthol use is likely to continue.
