Source: Is It Ethical for Nutrition Scientists to Accept Industry Money?

Grant money should be blinded – ALL of it.
Those giving the money will have NO say over where it goes, aside from, possibly the general discipline (i.e. Cancer Research, Chemistry, Gender Studies, etc.).
People receiving grants should have NO idea where the money comes from.
I’m sure it would result in a drop in available funds, but since more and more research appears to be showing up biased BECAUSE of the money source, that might not actually be a bad thing (for some careers, perhaps, but not for the advancement of knowledge).
Governments can compensate by offering better tax breaks for those who donate.
