Big Harma (Big Pharma + harm)

“Big Pharma” is a term used to refer collectively to the global pharmaceutical industry. “Big Harma” (Big Pharma + harm) is a term used by those who believe that Big Pharma pushes expensive and dangerous health solutions.
“Big Harma” was posted on Twitter by Evidence Matters on July 9, 2009. “I’ve just been asked to do an interview with al jazeera on H1N1 and big harma ethics” was posted on Twitter by Nick Johnson on October 8, 2009.
“Big Pharmafia” (Big Pharma + mafia) is another Big Pharma nickname.
Wikipedia: Big Pharma conspiracy theory
The Big Pharma conspiracy theory is a group of conspiracy theories that claim that the medical community in general and pharmaceutical companies in particular, especially large corporations, operate for sinister purposes and against the public good, and that they allegedly cause and worsen a wide range of diseases.
History and definition
The term Big Pharma is used to refer collectively to the global pharmaceutical industry. According to Steve Novella the term has come to connote a demonized form of the pharmaceutical industry. Professor of writing Robert Blaskiewicz has written that conspiracy theorists use the term Big Pharma as “shorthand for an abstract entity comprising corporations, regulators, NGOs, politicians, and often physicians, all with a finger in the trillion-dollar prescription pharmaceutical pie”.

@fuzztwin I was toying with Big Harma - but, too like Pharma and skating too close to unintentioned libel (albeit not a named entity)

A most important film. They want mandatory vaccines because Big Harma cannot afford a bunch of super healthy & smart un-vaxxed kids running circles around the vaxxed. We all believed in vaccines at one time…we’re ex-vaxxers! #TheGreatAwakeningWorldwide

I’ve watched her and I think she knowingly lies with her absurd and harmful recommendations which only benefit Big Harma.
