Medico-ecological aspects of hydrochemistry of Uzbekistan E. Kamilova & G. Rakhmatkariev* * Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry, Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan, Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Abstract Investigation of the relationship between environmental changes and population health constitutes one of the most important parts of human ecology. An integrated study of the ecological and sanitary status of water resources in Uzbekistan, and a description interrelations between rate of their contamination and population health status are presented in this paper. Concentration of manganese, iron, cobalt, zinc, cadmium, chromium, rubidium, selenium, scandium antimony, strontium, lithium, lead, mercury, silver, aluminum, beryllium, molybdenum, nickel, tin and copper were detected by method of Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry.
