Perils of Protein drink


LOL Anyone know where I can order this.........

REAL STIFF DRINK
MAN SUES SHAKE MAKER FOR 3-DAY ORDEAL
By DAREH GREGORIAN and DOUGLAS MONTERO


June 6, 2007 -- A Harlem man has filed suit against the makers of the nutritional drink Boost, charging that the protein shake gave him the wrong kind of lift.

Christopher Woods said that drinking cans of Boost Plus Nutritional Energy Drink left him with an erection that wouldn't go away.

According to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Woods was "caused to suffer and sustain severe bodily injuries" from "the erection that would not subside."

"It gave me a lot of energy - too much energy," Woods, 29, told The Post yesterday.

"It was unbearable and embarrassing."

He said he had to undergo two medical procedures for relief from the days-long erection, and as a result, he's now partially impotent.

"It's affecting my life because I'm not getting the pleasure I used to," Woods said.

The suit, which seeks unspecified monetary damages for Woods' "pain, shock and mental anguish," names the drink's former manufacturer, Mead Johnson, and its current one, Novartis.

Mead Johnson said it no longer has anything to do with the drink, and reps for Novartis did not return calls for comment.

The Woods vs. Johnson case dates to June 2004, which is when he said his mother bought him a case of the protein drink in hopes he would bulk up.

"It was supposed to be a health supplement," he said.

The suit says he used the "product in accordance with its intended use" - and soon had a very visible side effect.

He said the erection lasted for over three days, and his girlfriend "was in disbelief. She couldn't understand what was happening."

"It was awful. It was painful. I would always wear jeans, but it was hard to go out, so I had to buy some sweatpants," Woods said.

He said his 7-year-old son asked him what was going on and "I didn't know what to tell him."

He saw a doctor and underwent a "winter shunt" - a painful procedure where a needle is used to drain blood. The suit says he experienced "persistent problems requiring a follow-up hospital visit" a week later.

Woods said he was given two choices - undergo either an embolization, where blood is blocked from going to the arteries, or an amputation. He chose the former, but it has made it difficult for him to get a full erection and left him in "a state of discomfort."

Woods said the experience has affected his love life because it's made him very self-conscious.

    LOL. Thats pretty funny,

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tan Hauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die

    Can't see how that could happen...

    Maybe it was psychosymatic? (sp?)
