“Cassandra Samuels, whose son, Matt, led the Raiders in scoring last season, is seeking $25,000 in damages, alleging the drink Farello provided caused her son to become sick and require hospitalization.”
C’mon. Hospitalization for drinking Em-Pact? I don’t even know what Em-Pact is, but I don’t see creatine mentioned here http://www.mannatech.com/USA/fod.asp?fodnumber=1017
Read the whole article and it seems this woman has a personal grudge against the coach, but there is still this scary part:
“A draft proposal of the new regulations would prohibit staff from dispensing or recommending that students consume performance-enhancing substances including steroids, androstenedione, creatine, human growth hormone, ephedra and caffeine as well as products that provide large doses of amino acids, vitamins or minerals.”
What this tells me is that if a kid is in a weight training class, or plays a sport and wants to get bigger - the coach cannot recommend that he/she take a protein supplement, a multivitamin, etc. Ridiculous.
