The important scientific problem of modern science is the issue of abilities and mechanisms of regulating the public health by influencing the environment, which contamination has become a global, stable and permanent factor, regardless today’s development of science and technology. Some heavy metals, particularly lead and cadmium, are considered to be the main pollutants. They are mentioned in the «List of Controlled Toxic Substances» of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). One of the main "targets" of Pb/Cdinduced toxicity is liver tissue. The use of biometals (zinc, iron, magnesium) prevents, reduces or completely eliminates the Pb/Cd-induced specific and nonspecific effects on the organ, cellular and molecular levels.
