Geochemical features of hair of the population of South Kazakhstan

Natalia Baranovskaya, Botagoz Sharipova, Anuarbek Kakabayev

One of the features of residential areas is the anthropogenic impact on the environment, characterized by intense changes in the natural geochemical background. Chemical compounds actively entering nature due to human production activities are included in biogeochemical cycles and are able to accumulate in living organisms. To assess the degree of this accumulation, the study of the elemental composition of human hair has proven itself well.

A study of 40 heterosexual residents of the region (17 men and 23 women) was carried out using a multielement hair analysis by the INAA method. As a result, the features of the elemental status of the population of the studied region were revealed.
