ABSTRACT. The problem of heavy metal pollution of natural environments of industrial cities is very relevant today. Yaroslavl is a major center of the chemical and machine-building industry. The most susceptible group to the influence of pollutants, including heavy metals, are children. A study was conducted on the content of heavy metals in the hair of preschool children in the city of Yaroslavl and the region, as well as in environmental objects to identify the environmental situation. It was found that with an increase in the technogenic load, the concentration of cadmium and lead in the objects of the environment and in the body of the studied children significantly increases.
