Expert Answer:

  • Vegetarian food means consuming the producers. Producer is the first trophic level of the terrestrial food chains. 
  • Generally organisms at the lowest trophic level are always greater in number. As we move to the higher trophic levels, the number and the complexity of organisms increase.
  • Producers support large number of organisms.
  • Hence, vegetarian food habit can sustain a large number of people.
