Stark Numbers

Saw this online -- a very stark representation of the reality is of the average animal consumption:

If the average person in the US were to stop eating chickens (even if they replaced that spot in their diet with equal amounts of pig and cow flesh) they would move from eating 24.4 farmed land animals a year to 1.9 animals a year. Were they so bold as to drop turkey as well it would move down to 0.9 farmed land animals. From over two dozen to less than one animal a year!
