Vanity can kill you

This post has nothing at all to do with engineering or machine design. But the news bothered me enough to want to share it as a pre-cautionary tale.

An unlicensed, non-medical individual recently allegedly injected two women with a combination of saline and industrial silicone oil, telling them it would enhance the shape of their buttocks. Both women are now hospitalized, with critical, potentially irreversible harm. Many doctors have now seen instances of complications from such botched injection procedures skyrocket. An independent study shows the rate and type of such adverse events reported to the FDA.

The moral of the story: Vanity can kill you.
