Me and my dad both have Thomsen's and he says he always did what you and me do (I'm 17 by the way) and it worked out just the same for him. He says that when you turn 40 it hits the fan and catches up with you a little bit. But considering how he took care of himself in college, I don't think its as severe as it could be. But hey, better safe than sorry right? Might as well be healthy!
