Abstract: The paper deals with the issue of the influence of soldiers’ nutrition in foreign missions on the contents of total cholesterol (TCH), triglyceride (TAG), glucose, and alanine aminotranferase (ALT). Combined rations consisting of the preparation of hot meals on a military base and combat rations of foodstuffs that provide soldier’s nutrition, in case of impossibility to deliver the hot meals, are an optimal solution. Adverse effect on consumption had psychosocial factors, i.e. eating in a hurry and stress, about the culture of eating it cannot be spoken at all. Air pollutants of chemical contamination and air contamination of the diet had a significant negative impact. The biochemical tests showed that the prolonged duration of the mission led to deterioration of health, especially in dislipidemic disorders. The increase in levels of TCH is particularly evident with the troops in the KFOR mission. The obtained values are characterized as an increased risk of acute cholesterolemia and are also enhanced by the low average age of evaluated group. The growing trend of increase in cholesterolemia is presented as a general phenomenon by foreign and domestic authors.
