Abstract

A comparative analysis of the morbidity and of the elemental hair content among children living on the different territories with contrasting incidence of the children and with contrasting environment (Apatity, Lovozero, Murmansk region) in the Kola North was carried out. Territorial morbidity was estimated on the basis of statistical data on morbidity of the children population 0–14 age in the Murmansk region during 2006–2016. For elemental analysis, hair samples have been received and analyzed by using method mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-MS) in groups of children (25 people in each group) of preschool and school age living in the reference areas. The content of following elements: Ag, Al, As, B, Ba, Be, Cd, Cs, Cr, Cu, Fe, I, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, Pb, Rb, Sn, Se, Si, Sb, Sr, Ti, Tl, V, Zn, K, P, Ca, Co in the hair samples were estimated. It was shown that content of some genotoxic and toxic elements in the hair of children achieve and excesses upper boundaries of norm. Such elements could promote of the development of neoplasms and other disorders in the body of children, including diseases of the nervous systems and diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue. It is assumed that the source of toxic elements could be dust particles carried by air masses from tailings and processing sites of apatite-nepheline and loparite ore.
