Abstract

Total daily load and the contribution of the different ways of the lead entry in children’s organism in industrial and control area were calculated. The study of a complex metal intake in the children's organism with air, water and food has shown that in industrial areas its intake is increased and intake of micronutrients  - copper and zinc is reduced as compared to the control area. This work made it possible to draw a conclusion onjustified evidence that chemical loading of the environment makes a significant contributioninto worsening of children’s population. Lead occupies a leading place in this process. This necessitates the development of measures on prevention of ecologically-dependent pathology.
