Essential fatty acids (4), what about B6?

P.S. I can ABSOLUTELY tell you without a doubt B6 won’t fix that. LOL.

Bold claim? Nope. Demonstrated in 1938.

These results show that rats may develop acrodynia-like dermatitis if the diet is free from fat even when moderately large amounts of B6 are given. The possibility that the disease observed by Burr and Burr might be due to a low intake of vitamin B6 is ruled out by the finding that even with 10 times the minimum curative dose, unsaturated fatty acid is necessary for normal health and growth. The fatty acid factor is, therefore, an essential constituent of the diet for rats.
