Wild Card's description: 

there are the makings of a perfect storm. Certain conditions could come together to cause a major health epidemic or something that affects a significant sector of the agricultural business, or agricultural dependency, e.g. a wheat disease that wipes out wheat crops. That is the long-term effect. You could link it back to the lack of public labs, where research in those areas is no longer supported because research has become more commercially led.
