Background: Although studies suggest that concentrations of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are lower in individuals with schizophrenia, evidence for beneficial effects of fatty acid supplementation is scarce. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to determine whether omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid concentrations are causally related to schizophrenia.
