Were you looking for information about Radon? Rayden is a common misspelling of radon.
Radon is an invisible, odorless, and naturally occurring radioactive gas that is formed from the decay of uranium in rocks and soil. People breathe it in every day in low levels (as the gas is present in nearly all air), but long-term exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer. The levels of this gas can be higher in homes that are well insulated, tightly sealed, and/or built on uranium-rich soil. Numerous tests are available to check for elevated radon levels in a home.
