The biological age (BA) of the majority of liquidators of the consequences of radiation accidents in the navy and of the liquidators of the Chernobyl NPP accident exceeds the average standard and their DBA (due BA). The BA index can be a characteristic of the influence of social-hygienic factors on the health conditions in the Special Risk Subunit whose members liquidated the consequences of the radiation accidents. It was established that the radiation effect pertains to factors dramatically increasing BA and the rate of senescence in this group of people.
