As I have stated many times in previous threads, I am a commercial pilot for a UK major airline, and I have never heard of 1 pilot that gives any credence to this whats so ever.

When we all start dropping dead at 40 i’ll rethink the position, or even if we start losing our medicals early due to some mysterious illness i’ll again start to think about it, until then we have been using the same method for around what 5 decades, and the vast majority reach retirement, kick up their feet with a nice drink and cigar and enjoy many more years of healthy life.

A much more pressing problem ( and it is so small that nobody gives it much thought either ) is radiation exposure from so many flights at altitude.
