The article needs a complete re-write to be even encyclopedic. It currently is a synthesis (WP:SYNTH) of primary studies and relies on media reports from fox news etc covering the studies rather than secondary sources from the peer reviewed literature for weight (WP:FRINGE, WP:SCHOLARSHIP). It often fails to actually cite the studies and instead cites newspaper who are nowhere near reliable enough for the text (WP:NOTNEWS). The article appears even worse than after the last AfD. The last closer noted that the article was a poorly-written melange of primary sources and news coverage, this is still the case.

In summary, the article relies on a synthesis of news reports and primary studies and would require a rewrite to be encyclopaedic as it is unsalvageable. IRWolfie- (talk) 18:07, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Oppose. The article cites many peer-reviewed studies including secondary reviews. It is rapidly growing research topic. The many newspaper reports establishes the notability. Furtermore, arguing that the article could be improved is not a reason for deletion. Academica Orientalis (talk) 18:11, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
