22 Real Life Giants You Won’t Believe Exist

22. Romario Dos Santos Alves

25-Year-old amateur bodybuilder from Brazil was facing a number of health issues after continuously using an injection known as Synthol. This enhancement oil increases the size of the muscles to enormous sizes,  Romario also enjoyed attention from children who playfully compared him to the Incredible Hulk. However, soon he started to feel constant pain.

Synthol had hardened his muscles to the point where a needle wasn’t able to go through his skin. Romario almost suffered kidney failure, even worse still he came close to having both arms amputated! Somehow he got lucky enough that doctors were able to remove the leftover Synthol from his body without turning to amputation.
