    The ambient environment contains small plastic materials that can negatively influence the health of living organisms. As the plastic production rate annually increases, many plastic molecules can be degraded by different environmental factors. Thus, the plastic possesses the ability to penetrate the cells of living organisms and harms living organisms through different animal feedstuff and fish. The negative effect of nano-plastic can be noticed in many diseases, nutritional disorders, and the growth rate. Moreover, nano-plastic is a major source of toxins. We revised the possible action of dietary fibers to decrease the toxic effects of non-plastics, based on a large portion of undigested fibers in monogastric to excrete such nano-molecules. In addition, we explained the dietary fibremicrobiome synergistic axis to reduce the risk of plastic in the digestive tract. Finally, we highli.. View More»
