Cream

A Scottish born serial killer (1850–1892) who some believe was Jack the Ripper. Cream migrated as a boy with his family to Canada, where he attended McGill as an undergraduate and returned to the UK to study medicine at St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School in London, and qualified as a surgeon in Edinburgh in 1878. He returned to Canada where he began killing prostitutes with strychnine or chloroform which, coupled with his blackmail and pathological lying, led to his capture and trial. He was hanged in 1892.

Q. what does a sun block cream do? and what are a UV rays?

A. It blocks out harmful Ultra violet rays from the skin as the previous entries have related; however it can also block your ability to produce vitamin D. If you live in a northerly area or one that receives limited sunlight, its recommended to get at least 15 minutes of sun a day (this is probably best done with minimal sunblock) and according to personnal sun sensitivity. Another thing to keep in mind is that sunblock works best if applied 20 minutes before sun exposure.
