HRI featured in powerful new film

World premiere of “Just One Drop” presents first details of legal challenge to the Australian NHMRC Report on homeopathy

Based on extensive research, the powerful new film – “Just One Drop” – premiering at the Curzon Soho, London (April 6, 7pm) – features HRI’s collaboration with the Australian Homeopathic Association in preparing their complaint to the Commonwealth Ombudsman. The complaint provides evidence that the NHMRC misled the public and scientific community in their 2015 report which made headlines around the world.

Watch the trailer and find out more about the film.

Challenging the Australian Report

HRI presents evidence of misreporting in the highly influential “Australian Report”

Over the last 18 months, HRI has worked closely with the Australian Homeopathic Association (AHA) to conduct a thorough investigation into NHMRC’s failings during its 2010-2015 review of the evidence on homeopathy. This investigation culminated in a complaint being brought to the Commonwealth Ombudsman. The Executive Summary from this complaint is now available online.

Rachel Roberts, Chief Executive, HRI says “NHMRC’s review is just bad science. Decision-makers and the scientific community rely on these kinds of reports and need to trust their accuracy. This is not about anyone’s personal opinion as to whether homeopathy works or not. It is about the importance of evidence being reported objectively, whatever it says, and the NHMRC did not do that.”

HRI-funded research published

New paper presents latest findings on the physico-chemical properties of high dilutions

Dr Cartwright’s latest publication confirms his earlier results demonstrating the effect of homeopathic dilutions on sensitive dyes. His new system is simpler and more stable, allowing interpretation of the results in terms of electron density shifts in the dye itself. This latest work opens up new avenues of research to build on our understanding of how homeopathic dilutions work.
