The radiation environment is caused (Tien-Shan mountains) by natural factors and industries activity on extraction and processing of uranium raw material on the territory of republic. After closing and conservation of uranium mines and mine factories there was a plenty of radioactive wastes and tailing dumps on the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic. They are exposed to destruction under the impacts of anthropogenic and natural factors. There is a distribution of radioactive substances on an environment which represents danger to health of the population and to a gene pool as a whole. The given area is located in ecologically adverse zone as inhabitants of this region are exposed both to daily and to potential ecological risk.
