SUMMRY:
Goal. Scientific substantiation and improvement of existing theoretical approaches to assessing the impact of electromagnetic pollution on the state of the environment, substantiation of measures aimed at environmental protection and disease prevention.
Object and research methods. Contamination of agricultural areas of the Solomyansky district by electromagnetic radiation. Research methods are instrumental (measurements) and analytical (calculations).
Research results and their discussion. The work contains the results of the study of the distribution of electromagnetic radiation levels generated by the Kyiv Radio and Television Broadcasting Center in residential buildings of the Solomyansky district of Kyiv. With the use of personal developments and modern research methods, regularities of the spatial distribution of electromagnetic radiation levels have been established. It was established that the maximum level of electromagnetic load in the studied territories does not exceed 32% of the normative value.
According to the results of epidemiological studies, no reliable influence of electromagnetic radiation on the state of health of residents of the Solomyansky district of Kyiv was found.
Conclusions. On the basis of the performed instrumental studies, the maximum total level of the electromagnetic field by the radio stations of the Kyiv Radio and Television Transmission Center was established, which is 0.2 V/m. The maximum values of the electromagnetic load for the population occur at a distance of 1900 m from the TV tower. At the same time, the analysis of the calculation results shows that the level of the total load of electromagnetic radiation in the studied territories, even with the height of buildings up to 150 m, does not exceed the maximum permissible level.
