I'm sure there are MANY people who would LOVE to sponsor them, instead of crappy McD's and Coca Cola (no offense)!!!
Plus, they are soooo encouraging everyone to have something from them and I thought the United States was trying to make the world more NON-OBESE!!?? Am I right??! Maggie P.

Its a good thing mcdonalds isnt in the olympics..i have never liked mcdonalds and i never will! i dont want to be fat when i am older so i chose not to eat it..unless my parents force it on me! anything HEALTHY should be sponsering..not unhealthy fast foods.

WHY NOT LET A POPULAR SPORTS DRINK LIKE GATORADE/POWERADE SPONSER THE OLYMPICS??? It has some sugar in it, yes, but it's SO much healthier than most carbonated drinks! Just a suggestion! 😉 I have no clue why I typed in all caps but okay

I don't think there is a lot of childhood obesity, but I agree that Mcdonald's and Coca-Cola aren't the best products to eat/drink. If the olympics are supported by those two companies mainly, doesn't that make the athletes in the olympics seem kind of like on an unhealthy diet? If people think that and see the athletes perform thinking they eat/drink that company's products, than they will expecting to be fine if they eat it, right? I could be wrong, but that's just my opinion.

I dont think they should be banned. Not only are Coca-Cola and Mc Donalds faithful sponsers, its an ad... FOR THE OLYMPICS. It not like the ads are saying 'Oh go eat/drink our product and then sit on the cough and do nothing.' That is NOT what the Olympics are about! It basically just saying that sure you can eat/drink this, but go get ACTIVE. Sheesh. Food and drinks are NOT what solely causes obesity, its eating/drinking stuff and then doing nothing! Just excercise!

Advertisements don't make us buy their product: it's still our decision. Is there a lot of child obesity? yes, but that doesn't mean that it's the companies' fault, it's the parents' fault! McDonald's and Coca Cola may not have the healthiest food on the planet but it certainly isn't the worst thing ever. They act like these big companies are the issue when it's really the consumers' faults for eating large amounts of unhealthy food. No matter what it's our decision what we eat.

I don't think they should banned it because these companies have been faithful to them and for them to just banned them wouldn't be fair.

i think it should be banned from being an ad in the Olympics. the Olympics are about being fit and healthy and active. i'm not saying they should be banned on t.v just for the Olympics. yes, cutting it from t.v for a while wont make people stop being fat. but it makes sense not to have it for the Olympics.
