30 Years Ago, there was no internet, it was hard to find data, hard to prove data, now with the internet, wikipedia, and edu sites, it is easy to provide proof of the Truth. This is 1989 data but proportional to todays data. Source: http://www.animalliberationfront.com/Practical/Health/robbins.htm AND http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~an4m/recipes/antimeat.html

* update 2014: starvation has been reduced percentage wise but the population continues to soar, in 2014 a child under age 5 dies of starvation every 10 seconds.
Update based on.....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starvation
wikipedia quote: "According to the World Health Organization, hunger is the single gravest threat to the world's public health.[2] The WHO also states that malnutrition is by far the biggest contributor to child mortality, present in half of all cases.[2] Undernutrition is a contributory factor in the death of 3.1 million children under five every year.[3] Figures on actual starvation are difficult to come by, but according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, the less severe condition of undernourishment currently affects about 842 million people, or about one in eight (12.5%) people in the world population" ~wikipedia

"Soybeans (and rice) produce at least two times as much usable protein per acre than any other major vegetable or grain crop, except for hemp which can produce up to 293 lbs of usable protein per acre (33 g/m˛). They produce 5 to 10 times more protein per acre than land set aside for grazing animals to make milk, and up to 15 times more protein per acre than land set aside for meat production.[1]" (quote found on right side of chart)

"When about 16 Years of Age, I happen’d to meet with a Book, written by one Tryon, recommending a Vegetable Diet. I determined to go into it. My Brother being yet unmarried, did not keep House, but boarded himself & his Apprentices in another Family. My refusing to eat Flesh occasioned an Inconveniency, and I was frequently chid for my singularity" -Ben Franklin- Chapter 1 "The Autobiography" E302.6F7A2 ONLINE http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Autobiography_of_Benjamin_Franklin/Section_Nine
