I find life extension discoveries fascinating.  For the full article on the gene:

There are a number of genes with interesting names.  There’s one named “Kenny”, in reference to the South Park character that used to die all the time, because flies that don’t have the gene will die within two days.  It seems strange to me, though, that not having the Kenny gene makes the fly die.  An argument could be made for either side with the INDY gene, so I’ll leave that alone.

Also, I really doubt that any celebrity diet actually does something good for the body… Don’t let Chinny befuddle you!
