Total bunk put out by the vegan calculator club to get attention as noted at the link below that works...7,000 is estimated with no facts on this or their other opinions offered as usual.

80 year old on which the statement is based lives 29,220 days which includes 20 leap year days, he/she would have to eat an entire animal every 4.17 days for their entire life from birth to death. Common sense says it ain't so...even for a heavy meat eater not just the average meat eater.

I guess they mean if you eat a salad with cocktail shrimp you've contributed to the slaughter of a dozen or so animals in one sitting.

A few more stats

In 2013, Americans (about 300 million) ate an average of 104.4 pounds of meat per person. Of that, 56.3 pounds were beef, and 46.8 pounds were pork. Each American also consumed 83.2 pounds of chicken, turkey in 2013 was 16 pounds. The average total amount of poultry eaten was 99.2 pounds.

Therefore, the average total for all red meat and poultry was 203.6 pounds.

The amount of fish and shellfish eaten by the average American in 2012 was 14.4 pounds.

the meat industry states;
Total meat and poultry production in 2012 reached more than 92.9 billion pounds, up 600 million pounds from 2011.

In 2012, the meat and poultry industry processed:
8.6 billion chickens
32.1 million cattle
250 million turkeys
2.2 million sheep and lambs
113.2 million hogs

Maybe 7,000 is a low estimate?

"News Flash"...everyone gets defensive when attacked. "Fanatics" is accurate when looking at the ridicules and laughable 7,000 animals eaten by each person presented as fact. Take a look around this site, when was the last time a meat eater started a post exalting the virtues of eating meat? We don't have defend our choice. Your agenda is obvious and your methods an facts are severely flawed.

Jimbo. You are a great person. You are an amazing DIY-er. You are a great business owner. You are charming and sweet.

But take a deep breath.

According to an Oxford University study, vegans are 30% more likely to break a bone than meat eaters.

Chicken little, nice to quote out of context;

it went on to say "Vegans who got enough calcium were no more likely to break a bone"

And how about those forced to suffer the life of a slave to prepare vegan meals at restaurants waiting for the one order a week while hoping for one a day?
