The conditions of human existence in their relationship to the external environment, i.e., the conditions for biological existence, have changed sharply in our day in the economically advanced countries as a consequence of the revolution in science and technology. So have the conditions of work in contemporary enterprises. In a period of intensified development of the forces of production, an attitude of disregard for the problem of environmental production has the result that bodies of water, the air, and soil are polluted to a level creating danger to life. This causes the formation of a biosphere whose conditions do not correspond to the conditions of normal human existence and activity. The external environment to which man has adapted himself as the result of a long period of evolutionary development has so changed that human capacities for adaptation prove inadequate for normal existence under the new ecological conditions.
