The article deals with various aspects of some heavy metals damage activity (nickel, chromium, inorganic mercury and lead). Special attention is paid to the issues, connected with the DNA-damaging activity of the mentioned metals (mutagenicity of their ions in different test-systems, damage mechanism, mechanism of ceil and organism protection from heavy metals mutagenicity), but their toxic activity, biochemical activity, ecological aspects are also briefly discussed.
