Chemists have compared ashes of the cremated residents of Novokuznetsk to ashes of other Russians

The Tomsk researchers have analysed ashes which remain from the cremated people, and called the pollutants which are present at bodies of residents of Novokuznetsk and residents of other cities. Scientists from the Tomsk university have asked a question that can tell the ashes remaining after cremation of people. Geoecologists for the analysis have taken 20 tests of ashes from crematoriums of St. Petersburg, Novokuznetsk, Novosibirsk, Rostov-on-Don and Yekaterinburg. In the future samples will be taken in Norilsk. The research has shown that residents of the different cities accumulate various metals which harmful influence health in the organism. So, at residents of Novokuznetsk the increased content of aluminum is recorded that is connected with existence in the city of the aluminum plant. At residents of Novosibirsk high concentration of gold is noticed. In ashes from Yekaterinburg caesium, strontium and niobium, in Rostov-on-Don – thorium and rare-earth metals, in St. Petersburg – rare-earth elements terbium and lutetium prevails. Scientists still should find out what distinctions are connected with. These metals in itself don't harm the person, however their increased contents can harmful affect health. Scientists hope that their works will help to define specifics of diseases of people in the different cities, transfers "RC in Tomsk".
