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”.

Pharmafia: An Interview With Peter Gøtzsche
Peter hits the nail on the head throughout this 15 minute interview.
He points out that drugs are the third leading cause of death in the world today, after heart disease and cancer. He also points out that the business model of the drug industry is organised crime and that they steal far more money and kill more people than the mob.
I’m thinking the word Pharmafia should now be used by as many patient safety advocates and groups as possible.

Fearmongering! Ultimate agenda is to control people “protecting” them. Why are Pharmafia and main stream media silent about the cheap successful treatments against covid-19 ?
