Bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos Nearly Lost His Arms After Inject
Three years ago, Brazilian bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos, 25, changed his life after he was introduced to synthol - a mixture of oil, alcohol and painkillers that make one's muscles bigger. He regularly started injecting himself with the dangerous cocktail, and his biceps grew to more than 25 inches. He later faced amputation after the muscles turned to "rock."
