Essential fatty acids are necessary for growth of tissues. Insufficient intake can affect development of the central nervous system which occurs mostly in the prenatal phase. It may lead to impaired development and function of the brain and retina. Reference: Dietary Fats and Health, by E G Perkins, W J Visek, Pg 284
