"Brown's main point in ensuring global food security is protecting cropland. Whether it be soil fertility, desertification, or the loss of arable cropland to other uses, he makes many valid points about the rapid rate of the destruction of the earth's precious arable soil. In chapter five, for example, Brown cites the planet's increase of seventy million people every year. The addition of more than seventy million people requires continuous construction of houses, highways, factories, and office buildings. Many of our arable soil is then inevitably used for non-agricultural purposes."

    It's all grammatically correct. The only thing I'd mention is that you use, "arable soil," and, "seventy million," more than once. It might make it sound a little repetitive, in which case you might want to reword a sentence or two so that you don't use the same phrases as much. But other than that, it seems perfectly fine.
