so in my constant search for what is going on with me i had my hair analyzed for heavy metals.

these were out of range

antimony 0.042 (range < =0.016)

cadmium 0.045 (range <= 0.022)

lead 0.706 (range <= 0.700)

tin 0.520 (range <= 0.149)

now..could this point towards anything or are these kind of tests unrealiable and not diagnostic of anything?
