At the same time, an increase of cancer incidence has been observed, especially in heavily contaminated areas. Circumstances mentioned above cause common interest in the prospects of more efficient primary prevention of neoplasmatic diseases [1, 3, 5].

For the effective prophylaxis it seems to be necessary to integrate individual and common efforts including both sphere of social and technical activity for an environmentally friendly model of civilization.
