This paper studies the modified mathematical model of the natural technologies of an organism. The synergy effect caused by damaging the basic system components of an organism is explored at the qualitative level. Finally, we introduce a certain measure of organism’s integral degradation; the measure serves for obtaining some quantitative estimates of the synergy effect.
