Is soy grown for human consumption or for animal feed?

To read (FR) on e-rse.net (Google translate)

“We know that in terms of ecology, soy is not exactly a good student. Its cultivation is relatively intensive (especially in monoculture, and especially when it is GMO), and it sometimes involves the deforestation of important areas of forests, especially in South America. […] What these figures fail to mention is that the use of soy for animal feed does not preclude the use of soy for human consumption. On the contrary, these two uses are complementary and go hand in hand. In fact, the production of soybean meal for breeding is the result of the production of another by-product of soybeans: soybean oil, which is intended for human consumption. “
