Abstract

This article presents the modern conceptions about formation of new scientific direction - medical geology. There are presented the results of analytic researches by the instrumental neutron activation analysis of elemental composition of ash residue of human body. The most full researches of ash residue of human body were held in the following regions of Russia: Novokuznetsk, Novosibirsk, Rostov-on-Don and Saint Petersburg. The living substance, including the human biosubstance, organs and tissues, as well as the whole human body, reflect the following characteristics: -geological and geochemical heterogeneity of Earth's crust; -quality of potable water; -atmosphere and dietary intake; -peculiarities of technogenesis, which specific character appears in each individual region. Taking into account the regional and other peculiarities, the knowledge about exact quantitative elemental composition of human can cause more efficient activities of correction of human and animals health, and early prophylaxis of various diseases.
