The mechanisms of the effects of heavy metals in the body of animals were considered. We investigated a method of reducing of the level of transition of strontium from feed to the animals and established the influence of vitamin E on the intensity of the delay of strontium in the body of rabbits poisoned with the metal. The once-per-day introduction of vitamin E (α-tocopherol acetate) at a dose of 3 mg/kg of 30 % oil solution within 14 days per os reduces the transition of strontium from feed to the animals. Reducing the accumulation of strontium under the influence of vitamin E in the studied organs of poisoned animals to physiologically safe limits is an important consideration when conducting prevention activities in biogeochemical provinces of Ukraine with a high content of heavy metals in the environment.
