Keeping/Storing your DSLR in the camera bag is bad for the lens: Fact or Myth?

Ive been told its bad for the lens and makes it age faster, so when at home I take the camera out and just let it breath to fresh air.  But if its not needed, i would obviously much prefer to keep it in the bag.

Is this fact or myth?
