Beef: Put it in Your Mouth (Not in a Needle, and Then in Your Skin)

Roast beef cooked under high heat

When in doubt, it’s beef—that’s what to use for Botox! Wait….no part of that last sentence made sense. (oh yeah, beef is what’s for dinner!!) Tell that to 63-year-old Janet Hardt of Homewood, Illinois. This plastic surgery enthusiast clearly missed that memo, when she thought it would be a good idea to injected heated beef fat around her mouth and chin. She’d done this at home procedure several times before recently going to the doctor complaining that “her face felt like it was burning.” Unfortunately Hardt died…true story though, her death had nothing to do with the beef injections. An autopsy revealed cause of death to be peritonitis; a severe abdominal inflammation caused by a bacterial infection. (I bet you didn’t see that one coming)
