Instead of pepper spray, the Japanese are devising a variety of novel solutions to promote safety. Examples include a vending machine disguise, a purse that can hide valuables by unfolding to look like a sewer cover, a line of knife-proof high school
Yes, I agree! Cultures in the past weren't able to prolong the shelf life of foods as we can today (with all of our technology). Even low-resourced communities today (that don't have access to refrigeration, for instance) are much more resourceful with food and proactive about preventing waste.
I also love the idea of incorporating recipes from around the world. Some articles have pointed toward how eating more traditional recipes can actually be healthier as well. For instance: http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2015/04/11/398325030/eating-to-break-100-longevity-diet-tips-from-the-blue-zones https://www.amazon.com/100-Million-Years-Food-Ancestors/dp/1250050413
Thanks for your feedback, Shane! In terms of your question, there aren't social features in Mango Health today, though there's certainly activity on their social media platforms, e.g., Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mangohealth
I've also added the website URL per your suggestion. :)
