Supermodel Elle Macpherson has continued to embrace her new life among the most notorious members of the anti-vaxxer movement.
Macpherson has been dating disgraced former doctor Andrew Wakefield for several years, despite his reputation as a medical pariah, who fled to the US after being struck off the medical register in the UK.
Wakefield caused widespread panic among parents after he published false claims linking the MMR vaccine to autism in 12 children in 1998. The false claims led to a sharp drop in vaccinations, and a rise in childhood diseases including measles – which had previously been all but eradicated.
Despite being reviled by the medical community, Macpherson has embraced Wakefield, and the anti-vax community, who have in turn twice honoured her at the annual “Doctors Who Rock Awards”.
