    HFCS, MSG,Hydrogenated oils-- to start with.
    Then there's artificial colors and flavors, preservatives, emulsifiers, stabilizers, artificial sweeteners,...
    Just avoid all of them. Eat real food.

    Silica gel is one I avoid. It is the same stuff in packet mixes(like taco seasoning) that you find are in the packets found in new shoes boxes and purses! They put up to 2% of product content and have no clue where it goes in our bodies! Holly

    When you shop for Groceries in most stores if you avoid the aisles and shop the periphery - the outside aisle you find real food.  If it comes in a box or a can or a carton it's likely processed.

    Eat as close to the source as you can and you have less to worry about.

    If a food decays in nature in a week... but lasts for months on a shelf you have to ask yourself if that is something you really want to put into your body.

    There is no nutritional value in additives so why eat them?
