Abstract: It is generally accepted that over the last decades the concept of xenobiotics has been related to environmental and human health impact, emphasizing environmental xenobiotics in the context of pollutants, as substances foreign to an entire biological system, which did not exist in nature before their synthesis by humans. Environmental xenobiotics are becoming increasingly problematic in medicine and environmental systems because dangerous and unstable situations can result from their presence. The harmful effects on humans and ecosystems of environmental xenobiotics are often unpredictable, and it is challenging to exploring the effects on life forms and the environment. A serious concern is related to the health of humans and other life forms that is impacted by environmental xenobiotics caused by the operation of electrical generating stations. For instance, the immune system is extremely vulnerable and sensitive to modulation by environmental xenobiotics. Numerous experimental assays could be performed to ascertain the immunotoxic potential of environmental xenobiotics, taking into account genetic factors, the route of xenobiotic penetration, and the amount and duration of exposure, as well as the wave shape of the xenobiotic. This lecture focuses on an approach for the analysis of electric power plants environmental xenobiotics using mathematical models and corresponding methods for the specific mechanisms.
