Why did Romario Dos Santos use bodybuilder injections? His arms grew enormous almost immediately, letting him achieve that particular image he was looking for, but the risks of injecting synthol, which is a combination of mineral oil and alcohol, cannot be underestimated.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Romario Dos Santos quickly built up his body with 25-inch biceps, but the young man found out fairly quickly the dangers of bodybuilder injections. His arms turned rock from synthol crystals, and he even faced the possibility of death due to kidney failure.
“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,” Romario said. “I still feel like taking synthol but I won’t take it again. If you take it once there will definitely be a second time – it’s addictive. I regret it a lot – my ambition is still to become a bodybuilder but I’ve got a long way to go. I know I will achieve it though.”
