大号手提包--女性健康杀手 
Handbags a health hazard for women, experts warned
 

With big handbags becoming a key fashion accessory for women, health experts are warning they can also become a key health concern.

Bags for women have become bigger and heavier, and it has many patients complaining of neck, shoulder and back problems.
These big handbags usually weigh from 3 to 4 kilograms. According to a family practice physician, people are really going to see women with more and more problems later on if they continue the big purse craze.
 
So he recommended correct posture while carrying bulky purses, keeping the head and shoulders aligned upright. Patients should also frequently change the size and weight of purses carried.
 
concern - something that interests you because it is important or affects you
 
craze - fad: an interest followed with exaggerated zeal; "he always follows the latest fads"; "it was all the rage that season"

bulky - of large size for its weight
