This study examines the effects of the ratio of n−3/n−6 fatty acids (FA) on brain development in mice when longchain n−3 FA are supplied in the diet. From conception until 12 days after birth, B6D2F1 mice were fed liquid diets, each providing 10% of energy from olive oil, and a further 10% from different combinations of free FA concentrates derived from safflower oil (18∶2n−6), and fish oil (20∶5n−3 and 22∶6n−3). The range of dietary n−3/n−6 ratios was 0,025, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, and 4.0, with an n−6… CONTINUE READING
