It is not an addition, it is just something that you choose to do. If you do not like it, do not do it. Get involved in healthy activities that involved decent people. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
