Why not just tell tourists to go elsewhere. If not for sunscreen, who would go to the beach?

Surely you jest or didn't read the article (one of many recent ones on the subject). The whole point is that there are plenty of sunscreens and blockers available which DON'T contain the chemicals proven harmful to the marine environment.

The "natural" crowd promotes coconut oil as a sunscreen. I'm reminded of the Seinfeld Epidode where Neumann sees Kramer as a turkey with golden skin.

I prefer the natural method of getting a nice base coat of melanoma
