Construction worker Valdir Segato from Sao Paolo has a normal-looking face, then you see his body! This self-confessed "wimp" started injecting the dangerous chemical oil Synthol into his muscles to get them looking bigger and got hooked. He went from 12 inch arms to 23 inches, though most people would agree that this is not "muscles" as such.
The 48 year old says he is proud to be known as "the Monster" who wants his arms to be 27 inches. He says as a youth he was a drug addict and was known as "skinny dog"! He has gone from 55 kgs to 80 kgs but says the oil does not make him stronger. He has been warned by doctors that he faces serious consequences including amputations by carrying on using Synthol but he doesn't care. He says he is hooked. Valdir says his ultimate ambition is to be famous and look good. The question is, does he look good?
