Sunscreen: Boon to Bane?

According to a "new study commissioned by the European Commission" (can any hack write for AFP now?), common sunscreens can damage and kill coral reefs even in small amounts. That's just great. So I'm in a tropical area, trying to limit skin damage, and now I can get guilt-tripped for getting in the water. Well, hopefully someone will quickly develop some new environmentally-friendly sunscreens.
