Abstract:

Medical geology is the study of the effects of geologic materials and processes on human, animal and plant health, with both good and possibly hazardous results. In its broadest sense, medical geology studies exposure to or deficiency of trace elements and minerals; inhalation of ambient and anthropogenic mineral dusts and volcanic emissions; transportation, modification and concentration of organic compounds; and exposure to radionuclides, microbes and pathogens.

 

The existed preventive measures on medical geology achievments are taken into account in practical decision-making to achieve stable socio-economic development of society.
