I asked folks during a live interview and this is how they defined a ‘dirty gene’:
‘A dirty gene is a gene whose function is impaired either because you’re born with mutations or because their function is altered by mindset, diet and lifestyle choices, and environmental contaminants.’
‘When you’re born with a bunch of dirty SNP’s, you need to take greater efforts toward health through lifestyle, diet, stress, mindset and toxin choices.’
‘Dirty Genes are genes that are inhibited from working as optimally as they should be, in our biochemical pathways, because they are lacking the proper enzyme or cofactor to function at their best, or are being adversely impacted by other environmental factors that impair their function.’
‘What makes a non-mutated gene “dirty” is when its normal healthy function is inhibited by nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins, stress, etc. or some combination thereof.'
‘A dirty gene is born dirty via a SNP or becomes dirty from exposure to mold, chemicals or infection, The dirt impacts the ability of the gene to function properly.’
‘A dirty gene is a gene that needs a Soak and Scrub’
