Main Article Content
Background: According to physicists, thermal conductivity (k) refers to the rate at which thermal energy and the interaction
of microparticles transfer energy from warmer to colder parts of the body. To maintain body temperature homeostasis under
changing conditions in the external or internal environment, macroscopic organisms should differ in their k of the body. The
objective of the study is to evaluate the k of the body in students from Kyrgyzstan, India, and China. Materials and Methods:
In this study, 600 students from various racial and ethnic groups attended institutions in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, including 200
students from each of the following groups: Kyrgyz, Indian, and Chinese. The Kyrgyz and Indian (Uttar Pradesh and Punjab,
India) students from the Kyrgyz State Medical Academy, the International Higher School of Medicine, and the Chinese
(Guangzhou Province, China) students from the Kyrgyz Pedagogical University in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, were studied to
determine if race or ethnicity could affect the k of the body. Results: There were significant differences between the values of
k among the students of India and China, Kyrgyzstan and China, while the alleged relationship between Indians and Kyrgyz
did not appear which indicates a possible similarity between the k of the bodies of two nationalities. Conclusion: Variation
was observed in the k of various national groups in comparison to one another. The Kyrgyz and Indian students have a
similar distribution of k values, but the Chinese students have a distinct pattern.
