The worst case of child exploitation I've ever seen!

Hi there, I don't know how many of you saw the Channel Four programme "Body Shock" last night (entitled, "The world's largest boy") - it was about the former USSR 'phenomenon';

A 7-year old boy, who is 4ft-odd and weighs over 16 stone.

His Mother claims this is 'unusual' as he doesn't eat much, and regularly exercises.

To put this into perspective, I used to be a powerlifter, and he is almost the weight I was, when I was actively competing.

Someone is clearly administering steriods to this child (he has no shape, just rolls & masses of body tissue), to attain him some celebrity status (whereby the entire family are well looked after), by their local, superstitious community.

Absolutely shocking, I recognised the classic signs of steriod abuse (was offered, but never used them myself).

Its bad enough if someone is old enough to make these kinds of decision for themselves, and makes this kind of choice - but to be doing this to a child from the age of 3 just beggars belief.

Did anyone else see this?


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
