Believe it or not, heated beef fat is not an adequate substitute for Botox.
A Homewood woman died Thursday after apparently injecting heated beef fat into her face at her south suburban home. Janet Hardt, 63 of the 1000 block of W. 186th St. in Homewood, was pronounced dead at 6:25 p.m. at Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
A source said shortly before Hardt died she injected heated beef fat into her face around her mouth and chin, which she had done before on several occasions. Hardt went to the hospital after complaining that her face became singed and felt like it was burning, according to the source.
Wow, it’s hard to believe someone can be that tallow.
