Soy

Estrogenic

HFCS - High Fructose Corn Syrup (Extra sweet corn syrup)

Causes diabetes faster than regular sugar

Sodium Benzoate/Potassium Sorbate

Preservatives. They keep food from spoiling. Sodium Benzoate is related to benzene. It is also carcinogenic

Aritificial flavors

Any flavoring made out of inorganic material.

Why are you eating inorganic material?

TL:DR: The artificial preservatives, sweeteners, and colors used in our foods hurt us over time, and it would be better to avoid them.
