A woman nearly died after injecting the juice of 20 different fruits into her bloodstream

Zeng, 51, began feeling itchy and noticed a raised temperature after injecting a huge amount of fruit juice with a homemade IV drip and was taken to hospital in Guiyang, China when her husband noticed she didn't look well.

Doctor Liu Jianxiu told local media that she had contracted an infection and caused damage to her heart, kidney, and liver and the woman was left fighting for her life after contracting sepsis.

After five days in intensive care with doctor's carrying out dialysis to clear her blood of fruit juice - and a course of antibiotics - Zeng's condition improved.

She said that she thought fruits were: ''very nutritious and it would not do me harm by injecting them into my body''.
