We determinated the evolutive somatotype among 240 females aged from 16 to 20 years living in the Blagoveschensky, Volchikhinsky, Troitsky and Ust-Pristansky Regions of the Altai Territory. Two third of the residents of the Troitsky and Volchikhinsky Regions have pathological and disevolutive types of age evolution (the value of the trochanter index (TI) <1.91). About of 97 percent of residents of the Blagoveschensky Region have pathological and (TI≤1,85) disevolutive types of age evolution (TI = 1,86 ÷ 1,91). Some 80 percent of the residents of the Ust-Pristansky Region have normal values of TI or slightly deviating from normal (hypoevolutive, normoevolutive and hyperevolutive types TI 1,92 ÷ 2,03). The Blagoveschensky Region is characterized by high levels of air pollution (potential of air pollution 2.7-3.0). Living conditions in the Troitskiy and Volchikhinsky Regions comply with environmental regulations in the range of 3-4 points. The biogeochemical status of the territory of Ust-Pristansky Region partially characterized as satisfactory (4 points), partially - as a good (6 points, metals and halogen concentrations comply with environmental regulations). The relative risk of diseases of the endocrine system among the teenagers of the Troitskiy and Blagoveschensky regions is by five times higher; of Volchikhinsky Region is by six times higher comparing to relatively favorable area of Ust-Pristansky Region.
