Pharma’s and Big-Agri’s growing power happens mostly behind the
scenes. For whatever reason, mainstream media leaves these giants alone
except in terms of business profit margins. Before researching the two
industries, I knew nothing more than most people-a vague recognition of
the terms Big Pharma and Big Agri. A few magazines articles along
with some radio talk show episodes was all it took to ensnare me into
curiosity turned into research, I could not help but speculate that
these industries are involved in conspiracy on a global level. This is a
subject that impacts anyone who has ever taken medication, seen a
doctor, and/or eaten food. If you are intrigued about the elite inner
circle of these two empires, Big Pharma, Big Agri, and Big Conspiracy is
the perfect place to begin your journey in searching for the proverbial
man behind the curtain. This book is an introduction to history, fact,
and conspiracy theory of these growing industries. A follow-up book is
currently being outlined. For the record, I am NOT a doctor, just a
nerd who loves to learn new things.

approval, manufacturing, and prescriptions of the pharmaceuticals. Big
Pharma doesn’t just sell pharmaceuticals; they influence the entire
