Fats and schizophrenia

A study done by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations revealed that countries whose people obtained their fats from animal foods had less favorable outcomes in schizophrenic cases than those who used vegetable fats. This study suggests that diet may influence the course of schizophrenia. The authors call for a study evaluating a low-fat diet which contains adequate amounts of essential fatty acids in schizophrenics.
