The biological effects due to a hypomagnetic field (HMF) is a very important subject not only for aerospace traveling and space station living but also for some magnetic shielding conditions on the ground just like the underground bunkers and etc. However, to my knowledge, the mechanisms which can be related to the biological effects of a HMF remain unclear. In this study, I firstly summary one radical pair mechanism of biological effects on a HMF based on present researches, and then propose how to prove the radical pair mechanism’s truth in biological effects on a HMF through experiments. In the way of how to prove the radical pair mechanism’s truth I give the relation between the singlet yield of the radical pair and the angle describing the orientation of a HMF to the basis of the hyperfine tensor related to the electron spin and the nuclei spin is the possible one radical pair mechanism on one hand, and give the crucial method which is through that angle changed causes the biological effects in vivo or vitro to prove or disprove the mechanism on the other hand, because the biological effects of a HMF can be related with that angle, which is very easy to be controlled in experiments.
