Elle Macpherson Is Dating Notorious Anti-Vaxxer Andrew Wakefield

He's the disgraced doctor who started the theory that vaccines cause autism

‘The Body’ Elle Macpherson has a very controversial new boyfriend: Andrew Wakefield, the former doctor who was struck off the British medical register for unethical behaviour and misconduct – namely, for pioneering the anti-vaxxer movement.

The high-profile pair were spotted kissing at an organic market in Miami, Yahoo 7 reports, and are rumoured to have been together since late last year. 

Wakefield was discredited as a doctor when it was revealed he falsified data in a 1998 study that claimed the MMR vaccine (which protects against measles, mumps and rubella) can cause autism.

His findings, although now proven to be false, founded the anti-vaccine movement and are still quoted by anti-vaccine campaigners today. 

Macpherson, meanwhile, is busy spruiking super greens supplements designed to “nourish the body’s 11 systems from the inside out.”
