I have a friend of my own age (early 50's), who is too ill to use any kind of camera, or even his much-loved paint brush and easel....and never will again... It puts this kind of discussion and worry about film into perspective, and shows that it would be more productive to get out and enjoy our hobby. As my old boss used to say, "there are enough real problems around without inventing any new ones to worry about".
