In the review of literature a large number of experimental and epidemiological studies showing the undoubted negative impact of water pollutants on human health is submited. So, the biogeochemical diseases caused by the use of the water containing the quantity of microcells inappropriate to physiological needs of the person (increased or lowered) often connect with biogeochemical provinces. Numerouses literature data show that the population of major cities often suffer from an surplus of heavy metals in the body, preferably from drinking water. At the same time the consumption of low-mineralized water can lead to infringement breach of a number of physiological functions of the body – the cardiovascular, endocrine, reproductive and nervous systems, changes in water-salt balance and others. High-quality water which is responsible sanitary and epidemiological requirements, is prerequisite for health preservation of people and the nation in general.

Key words: drinking water, macronutrients and trace elements of human disease.
