Vanity almost Killed this Man

Lewis Brown, 25, became obsessed with building his physique and turned to steroids to pack on extra muscle. The lab worker, from Harerhill, Suffolk, UK, took diet pills DNP to burn fat over summer, but overdosed after taking eight pills, which pushed his body temperature to almost 42C. ‘I was so out of it about getting bigger that I thought I was unstoppable,’ Mr Brown said. ‘I just wanted to be better than anyone else.’

Doctors at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge put Mr Brown into a coma and covered him with ice, but when his muscles started to die his family were called in to say goodbye. Incredibly, Mr Brown recovered, but not before surgeons cut out of a chunk of dead leg muscle.
