I don't understand why "natural flavors" is allowed on food labels

The same goes for "artificial flavors" too. We deserve to know what we're putting into our bodies, right? I feel like the term "natural flavors" is not specific enough for me to make an informed decision about whether I want to be putting this into my body. Let me be perfectly clear with this. I'm not asking for anyone to share their secret recipe or anything. I just want to know what's in the food I'm eating. That's it. I seriously don't understand why the FDA allows such a vague term to exist on nutrition labels. Anyone else feel this way?
