Bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos Alves modeled himself on the Incredible Hulk and risked his life injecting oil into his arms. The 25-year-old turned to a cocktail of oil, painkillers and alcohol to pump up his biceps - with astounding results. Now the former bodyguard terrifies children with his super-sized muscles and is facing a catalogue serious health issues. The married dad-of-one says his experience of using the synthetic filler synthol cost him his sanity and nearly his life and he was even scheduled to have one of his arms amputated.
