    Her family knew she was doing this and didn't take her for psychiatric care?

    I'm thinking that the bacterial infection she died from could be related to the infection in her face caused by the injections. She had infections in her mouth and lips which could enter her digestive track.

    This sounds like a Darwin Award candidate to me.

    First you wonder how any sane person could do this, then you realize they can't be sane.

    I wonder if the fat Mom trying to get even fatter couldn't speed the fattening process with injections.

    She might be using one of those poultry injection needles you can buy in the cookware department.

    I have *invisible* powers.

    Poultry needles should be used with poultry fat.

    There's an invisible??

    "Infections in her face from the injections did not lead to her death, which was ruled natural, officials with the medical examiner’s office said."

    It seems to me this was nothing more than a poor journalistic attempt to link two unrelated events in order to make a news story out of nothing.

    Peritonitis is caused by bacterial infection. Now where could this infection have come from? The infections in her mouth and lips maybe going into her digestive tract? It didn't have to be injection = immediate death. Perhaps they tested the two types of bacteria and they didn't match, but it's not her death that is news.

    A news story about a woman injecting heated beef fat into her face is enough of a story by itself.

    And it serves as a good warning for anyone else who may be thinking about injecting animal fat in their faces. The fatal risk of bacterial infection is real. So please, if you or someone you love is injecting animal fat in your face...


    POST PICS!

    A 63-year old person dying from perotinitis (especially after injecting not animal fat under unsanitary conditions) is not normal or natural.
