The Klein-Kaluza theory with a nonvanishing torsion is developed.

The torsion is associated with spin and polarization of electromagnetic field. The electromagnetic polarization is considered as a source of additional components of torsion connected with 5th dimension. It is proved that new effects are bigger 1036 times than the effects from Einstein-Cartan theory.
