The formula <n>d=d/2, which describes bio-electromagnetic athermal effect, is deduced employing quantum theory. This law shows that the bio-electromagnetic athermal effect has no relation to the irradiation power, but to the structure of the living tissues. The phenomena about multi-photon absorption and bio-electromagnetic athermal effect may occur in cell membrane. Finally, the assumption how to test this theory is put forward.
