A review of data on the effects of cadmium on living organisms is presented. Cadmium (Cd) is an environmental toxicant and a metabolic disturbance in organs and tissues in humans. Cadmium compounds pathologically affect the liver, kidneys, cardiovascular system and embryogenesis. The negative effects of cadmium salts on the reproductive system are manifested in the violation of the function of germ cells, affect the fertilization and development of the early embryo, which is extremely sensitive to toxicity of heavy metals. Modern researchers are actively searching for bioantogonists of toxicity to heavy metal salts. Zinc is an essential element and its compounds in the body have antagonistic characteristics of the toxicological properties of cadmium compounds. Therefore, the study of the toxicological characteristics of cadmium compounds and the search for its bioantogonists is an urgent problem of modern biology and medicine
