I'm over 45. Used to do some twelves. Don't anymore. I can do the shift without too much trouble. The problem is that I don't bounce back as quickly as I used to. Eights work much better for me.
I agree that swing shifts are a major problem. No one, no matter what age, should have to work swing. Any shift, on a consistent basis, is better than swing. Young folks who constantly have to shift their sleep pattern will LOOK and FEEL 45 when they're 30 if they have to work swing for any length of time.
BTW, I work noc shift by choice and love it.
