Default Does frequent playback deteriorate a blu ray disc?

I have read in the following article in the" Enviromental Conditons" section that
blu-rays "are also more susceptible to data loss due to their more refined method of data recording and playback from use over time. Due to this fact, they have a slightly smaller life expectancy compared to DVDs but not by a significant margin, perhaps 5% less than the 5-25 range typically given".

Is this true? Does the number of times I watch a blu-ray movie results to data loss? Is the DVD really better than the blu-ray in that department?

I, for one, would NEVER buy a DVD over a Blu Ray of the same movie just because it might theoretically last longer. I want the best picture quality and the best sound possible. Buy what you like, enjoy them, watch them every day if you like, and if they go bad there's a great chance you can buy it again unless it's a rare one or out of print.

Plenty of other things to worry about than the lifespan of a particular disk or if you're somehow watching it "too much", which is honestly nearly impossible to quantify.

I don't think frequent playback effects the discs because nothing actually physically to touches the discs. It's only a laser that reads the discs it shouldn't degrade the discs.
