Were you looking for information about Radon? Redon is a common misspelling of radon.
Radon is a radioactive gas that is present in nearly all air. The gas, which is odorless, invisible, and tasteless, is released from the normal decay of uranium in rocks and soil. People who inhale high levels of radon are at an increased risk for developing lung cancer. The gas can enter homes through cracks in floors, walls, or foundations, and collect indoors. Tests are available to determine if a home has elevated radon levels.
