[48] Prof. T. Colin Campbell estimates that 70% of the pharmaceutical intake can be avoided if humans stop consuming animal foods, http://www.forksoverknives.com/the-film/

[49] This estimate is based on the observation that 35% of the land area of the planet is currently used to grow fodder to feed livestock. In addition, half the biomass from cropland is consumed by livestock as well. The argument being made is that if the biomass from cropland is fed directly to humans, then the grazing land for cattle will be freed up for ecosystem restoration. See IPCC AR5 WG3 Chapter 11, page 836: https://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/assessment-report/ar5/wg3/ipcc_wg3_ar5_chapter11.pdf

[50] This assessment is based on the observation that grain-feeding of livestock is prevalent mainly in the affluent nations of the world.

[51] This is a lower bound since crops that don’t use chemical fertilizers, as grown in the developing world, are used for human consumption directly.
