In a country with overwhelming poverty and malnourishment, scores of sex workers are using a drug called Oradexon to plump up their face and body. With many prostitutes also severely malnourished, the drug which costs less than $1 for 100 tablets , even serves as a cheap substitute for food.
After the sudden deaths of four young girls who regularly took Oradexon caused panic in local brothels, a Bangladesh sex workers' advocacy
group contacted a British charity called Actionaid who came up with this startling report.
The group estimates that as many as 90% of the 200,000 women and teenage girls that work in the country's sex industry may be addicted to Oradexon or similar steroids. These sex workers are unaware of the severe problems use of the drug
can lead to, including heart disease, obesity, kidney failure,
osteoporosis and even heart failure. It is also extremely addictive and
causes intense withdrawal symptoms such as headaches and skin rashes.
