omega 3 deficiency

A guy at work posed a question. He asked what happens if I do not consume o3.

If you are deficient in Vit C then you get survy, but what happens with o3 ?.

I am not looking for the benefits of o3 as thats well documented, I am looking for what happens if you dont consume enough.

From what I have read lack of o3 will negatively effect mood, concentration etc.

Anyone got a link to any info or studies ?

    Growth retardation, bevhavioural changes, general weakness, vision and learning problems, motor incoordination, tingling in arms and legs, inflammation in tissues, water retention, dry skin, low metabolic rate, gland dysfunction, sticky platelets, etc.

    As with omega 6 EFAs, avoid for long enough and you fall apart at the seams.

    (lol, sorry, just re-read your q, no studies to hand!)
