Claims of weight loss attributed to products sold by a Newport Beach man must be backed by "competent scientific and medical tests and studies" before they can be advertised, according to a court ruling in Ventura County. A Superior Court judge issued a preliminary injunction naming Leo Daboub who, investigators say, has done business under the names of Health Energetic Co, Vita Health, Nutritional Research, American Diet Assn. and has sold products called Orgi-Nine, Mannan-Trim, Slim Caps and Fast Trim. The Ventura County district attorney's office filed a consumer-protection suit accusing Daboub of false advertising.
