Or rather, twelve new pyramids - the new icon is actually a stand-in for a web-based system that customizes dietary recommendations as per a person's age, weight, and fitness. Without Internet access, the pyramid doesn't communicate much at all. Except, as NYU nutrition professor Marion Nestle tells Brooke, a long history of food industry influence.
