Thank you to the anonymous reader who have corrected a wrong entry. I stand corrected. Yes, sodium is the extracellular CATION and Chloride is the extracellular ANION. I've been teaching this for several years now and it was an honest typo mistake. The keypads are acting up again. LOL. Thanks again, I can't find your comment. I've read it only in my email. Kindly, include an email ad or online identity, so I could properly thank you. God bless.
