The meaning of Chon.

“CHON is an mnemonic acronym for the four most common elements in living organisms: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. These four elements are also notable for being the least massive (and having the lowest atomic number) in their group in the periodic table.”


I was told it had roots in the Korean language. I’m going to have to tell my parents that we are in fact molecular, not Korean.
