In humans with neuropathy or impairment of the immune system, significant deficits of omega 3 EFA have been measured, and in natural human populations, a wide range of omega3 and omega 6 proportions have been found, ranging from high omega 3 and low omega 6 content to low omega 2 and high omega 4 content.

Effect of sex and age on fatty acid composition of human serum lipids.
The age and sex differences observed and the SD encountered were much smaller than the changes observed in EFA deficiency, indicating that this population has utility in comparisons with suggested cases of E FA deficiency. Expand
Deficiency of essential fatty acids and membrane fluidity during pregnancy and lactation.
The changes seen in phospholipid profiles suggest a significant transfer of omega 3 and omega 6 polyunsaturated FA from the mother to the fetus, which are essential for normal fetal growth and development. Expand
