Is science about protecting monetary interests?

An article in The Independent highlights how funding of scientific research seriously obstructs the notion that "a good scientist should follow the evidence wherever it leads."

This confirms my view, which I already discussed, that science is subservient to financial and political interests.

Update: it appears others share my comcern.

Update II. Also, medical guidelines can be refuted on non-scientific grounds, merely because they appear uncomfortable to certain individuals that may lose income according to Orac.
