Uncooped PSA: "Jack Juice" is NOT a Treatment for Back Pain
You know what's a bad idea? Injecting semen into your arm to treat back pain. Yes, this truth seems rather self-evident, but some budding young GP wannabe in Ireland thought he'd give it a go, according to a report in the Irish Medical journal.
Irish Medical Journal? Bet they list a lot of case studies for alcoholism in that one.
The report states that a 33-year-old man had a history of chronic lower back pain, and complained of severe, sudden onset of lower back pain three days after he reportedly lifted a heavy steel object. The man later disclosed that he gave himself intravenous shots of his own semen as a way to treat his back pain. The semen had leaked into soft tissues, causing a severe infection.
The case report noted that while there is a report on the effects of subcutaneous semen injection into rats and rabbits, there are no other cases of intravenous semen injection into humans found across literature.
Wait a minute... Scientists were injecting rats with SEMEN? We're gonna have to do some digging and find out what THAT study was all about.
