In Chorzów inhabitants exposed to polluted environment, a decrease in erythrocyte and urine magnesium concentration was found in approx. 40% of workers irrespectively of type of employment. The higher percent of humans with the normal magnesium concentration in erythrocytes and urine was found in Chorzów than on the area near Skawina aluminium plant. This explained a less expressed negative effects of fluorides and lead ions in Chorzów inhabitants on energy, metabolism and health symptoms.
