To the Editor In her Viewpoint about corporate funding of food and nutrition research, Dr Nestle criticizes the food industry and scientists who associate with it.1

Dr Nestle claims that scientists who receive industry-derived research grants “often fail to realize that food-industry funding may affect their work…”.1(p13) She cites newspaper articles that “illustrate the concerns about biases introduced by industry funding.”1(p13) She also cites reports2,3 showing that there are relatively few studies funded by industry whose results are contrary to the funders’ interest and discusses her work on the subject including reference to her Food Politics blog.4
