Re: [Vegan-Baking] Plant consumption - how much is too much?

From: Morgan

The alternative is to eat vegan! Animal products consume more plants/land by far than plant foods. I believe the ratio is on the order of 20x the land to produce the plants that go into a typical meat-and-vegetables diet vs. a vegetarian diet. But don't quote me--I'd like to seek recent, well-sourced data.

Livestock eat most of the plants--people are consuming the plants indirectly. (I think it's amazing that the article fails to note that. They mention the. US-vs-Asia difference, even, but never follow the thought.)
