Following on from David, the funding should not matter.

We should not be using studies which have not been peer-reviewed.

We should be very wary of studies that have been peer-reviewed by
journals with a history of allowing garbage through.

We should be careful with new studies even when published in respected
journals, until the citation count rises to the point that we feel
comfortable that the study has been accepted by the academic
