Why are processed foods bad? : nutrition


First, I must ask what a processed food is, considering https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/processed-foods/ says that cutting, freezing, storing, or even CLEANING a food means it is processed. SO in context of a food being bad, what does it mean to be processed to the point of the food being bad?

Furthermore, when looking at the nutrition facts label, processed foods might have a lot of sodium, but others might not have that much sodium, but a lot of sugar. Are processed foods just foods with excess of some nutrient?

IS the reason that processed foods are bad even noticeable on the nutrition facts label, or is this reason separate?
