    Man gets prolonged erection, sues drink maker

    Man sues drink maker over unwanted Boost

    June 6, 2007

    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    A man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not subside and caused him to be hospitalized.

    The lawsuit filed by Christopher Woods of Manhattan, N.Y., said he bought the nutrition beverage, which is made by the Novartis pharmaceutical company, at a drugstore on June 5, 2004, and drank it.

    Novartis' Boost Plus Web site describes the drink as "a great-tasting, high-calorie, nutritionally complete oral supplement for people who require extra energy and protein in a limited volume" that comes in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavors.

    Woods' court papers say he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment of the condition, called severe priapism. Woods, 29, underwent surgery for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another.

    Woods' lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, names Novartis Consumer Health Inc. as a defendant.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I would guess it was more likely drugs or alcohol as the cause....

    This one will be hard to prove because about one third of the cases seen in ER have no known cause.......

    So, who can honestly say that Boost Plus is responsible for Woods' woodie? Would Woods have done better attempting to relieve his woodie without surgery? Did Ms. Woods at least avail herself of the woodie before Woods' woodie was de-wooded?

    Ha! I think they are looking for a man named Chuck, who is considered a "person of interest."

    She should have taken advantage of the situation at hand. Would have made it more pleasurable for both parties involved. Some people should look at the "up" side of things.
