Why do men have Adam's apples?
Actually, both males and females have Adam's apples (which is just the thyroid cartilage). The only difference is that men's thyroid cartilages are more pronounced so they can be easily seen, but to find it on a woman you would have to feel for it. Adam's AppleMen have an Adam's apple because their larynx (also called the "voice-box"), which contains the vocal cords is larger in men than in women. It is actually the thyroid cartilage, which makes up a part of the larynx, that protrudes from the front of the neck forming the familiar "Adam's apple.'

the Adams apple is named as so because biblicaly in the story of Adam and eve when Adam ate the apple some of it got stuck down his throat so all men hav a ball in there throat known as the larynx and if you touch it, it feels like an apple so that is why its called that hope i helped
The human larynx rests in a frame of cartilage bound by ligaments and muscles. At the front is the thyroid cartilage, creating the lump at the front of the neck, known as the laryngeal prominence or more commonly as the Adam's apple. Regarding the etymology of the term "Adam's apple", Webster's 19…13 dictionary states that the term "â¦ is so called from a notion that it was caused by the forbidden fruit, (an apple) sticking in the throat of our first parent." Laryngeal prominence The larynx grows during puberty in males much more than in females, and as a result the Adam's apple is typically more prominent in adult men than in women or prepubescent girls or boys. This growth of the larynx is also the reason for the voice cracking in teenage boys. The reason for the Adam's apple being more prominent in males is that the two laminae of the cartilage meet at an angle of 90Â° in males but that angle is 120Â° in females. For some transwomen, the Adam's apple remains more prominent than desired, and this is sometimes remedied by a chondrolaryngoplasty (trachea shave), a type of plastic surgery to reduce the size of the Adam's apple.

It was Eve who first sinned by eating a fruit (often called anapple) from the tree of knowledge (it was Satan in the form of aserpent that convinced her to take the fruit God had told her notto), thus opening her mind to the knowledge of good and evil, thenshe gave the fruit to Adam who ate it also …(thus choosing to sin aswell). So yes Adam is at fault for eating the fruit, but also for notputting God's word above all else. He did what Eve asked of him andnot what God asked of him. (MORE)
Answer . The slight projection at the front of the throat formed by the largest cartilage of the larynx, usually more prominent in men than in women..

Its the cartilage over top of your larynx (voice box). The bigger it is, the deeper your voice will be usually. Women have them but they are no pronounced because they don't have deep voices usually.
There isn't any direct correlation between Adam's apple and penis size. However, an Adam's apple is considered sexy by a lot of people and is even a common fetish that some women (and men!) have, likely because it is perceived as an inherently and profoundly masculine characteristic--and usually mea…ns a man has a fairly deep voice.- It does not mean they have a deep voice the Adams apple sizes are passed down from genes its like feet size, how it is passed down. I've known people with deep voices and not much of an apple atall (MORE)
While Adam was eating the apple that Eve had given him, he heard the steps of God approaching. Frightened, he gulped down the apple which got stuck in his throat, causing this slight projection at the front of the throat. Since then, this is visible in man.
because you don't get enough nutrients and you need to eat properly,and avoid snacking or meat.
Women do have Adam's apples, but they are less noticeable than aman's. Yes, they do have Adam's apple because it says that it is at the lump the front of a person's neck by cartilage in the throat. It's not common, but some women do. Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has one. The Adam's apple is rea…lly just a protrusion of part of the thyroid cartilage in the neck. In men, it tends to be more pronounced. Some women with higher levels of male hormones, like aldosterone and testosterone, may have a slightly larger thyroid cartilages than other women. Technically all women have the same thyroid cartilage as men, but the cartilage is smaller, so it does not stick out as much. So yes, all people have Adams apples. YES. It's just not as prominent as a man's. It houses the vocal chords. (MORE)
Some men have no visible Adam's apple, while other men have a very large, prominent one. The difference has to do with genes. In general, but not always, a larger Adam's apple results in a deeper voice. The apparent size of the Adam's apple can also relate to how thin or fat a man is.
im a girl and i don't have an Adams apple but im studying to become a surgeon and depending on how ld you are it might be puberty or a sore thrat talk to your doctor
The Adams apple is more prominent in men,to to disquish the difference from the female.
This term comes from the Christian religion, wherein there is a story of Adam and Even in the garden of eden. Eve eats from the tree of knowledge, a fruit called an apple, and shares it with Adam. As Adam takes a bite, God comes down and casts them out of the garden because they were told never to e…at from this tree. As punishment, among other things, God causes that piece of apple to stick forever in Adam's throat, thus... the Adam's Apple. (MORE)
Larynx is also called Adam's apple, because it mostly resembles like a the Adam's apple which is mentioned in Bible , a round-kind structure, which Adam ate. This Adam's apple appear in both girls and boys but in boys they grow more at the time of puberty.... thank you
Because in the story of the garden when Adam ate the forbidden fruit apple it got stuck in his throat. All my life I have heard the same explanation for why the "Adam's apple" is called that. Supposedly the phrase originated in the Middle Ages. There is no scriptural basis for calling it that. …Even if it were true, which it clearly is not, why would Adam's apple be more prominent? Why wouldn't the woman have the more prominent larynx, and therefore we would call it "Eve's apple"? In fact, there is more evidence that the forbidden fruit was not an apple at all. The Jews have long said it was the fig, instead, because the clothes they sewed for themselves were made of fig leaves. On the other hand, it was likely not a fruit we now know. There is no indication that God changed his command not to eat of that fruit just because they had already done so. The fruit of that tree is probably no longer available to us, and so is probably neither apple nor fig. (MORE)
The "Adam's apple" is another name for the thyroidcartilage , a piece of hard tissue that covers part of thewindpipe. The scientific name is Prominentia Laryngae. It basically meansprominence in the larynx or laryngeal prominence. The larynx isbigger in males because testosterone causes growth of …cartilage. (MORE)
Well, a girl has an Adam's apple, but it is less visible because it is covered with fatty tissue.
The Bible does not give a reason for the existence of the Adam's apple. If a relation to the Bible is desired, some people say - more tongue in cheek than serious - that Adam immediately felt guilty upon biting the apple and a piece of it got stuck in his throat and all men henceforth have had this …anatomical feature. (MORE)
Unknown . A prominent laryngeal prominence (Adams apple) is usually considered a male secondary sex characteristic However there is no scientific basis for this theory. because only some males have large laryngeal prominence and there are many women who also have them..
An Adam's apple is part of the larynx or voice box. When going through puberty, hormones cause the larynx to grow rapidly. Along with the bulge in the neck, the voice becomes deeper. And it's when Adam swallowed a apple and it got jammed in his throat.
They do have Adam's apples, they're just not at pronounced as men's Adam's apples. Hope this information is helpful :) When the larynx grows larger during puberty, it sticks out at the front of the throat. This is what's called an Adam's apple. Everyone's larynx grows during puberty, but a girl's la…rynx doesn't grow as much as a boy's does. (MORE)

You only get it if you are a man. The Adam's apple appears when the thyroid cartilage in your neck increases in size. This occurs due to the effects of testosterone, and is associated with male puberty. The thyroid cartilage increases in size to allow the vocal cords underneath to lengthen, which is… what allows men to develop a deeper voice than women or children. (MORE)
Men are born with A"dam's Apples" which is just another name for the Larynx also called the "Voice Box." During puberty the voice box enlarges and this results in the sound of a boy's voice becoming deeper. This is often described as a boy's voice "breaking" as it changes from the higher pitched voi…ce of a child to the deeper pitch of an adult male. (MORE)
because Adam, the first man on earth, had an abnormally large Adam's apple and so he passed it on to future generations which is why the Adam's apple in today's day in age is larger on men than women. Because men have lower voices than women do their Adam's apple sticks out more.
The Adam's apple is located in the throat. This is typically avisual feature and is only seen on human males.
No , I don't think that in Adam's shoes I would have eaten the apple. But then I'm looking at the situation in terms of who's doing the offering and what's being offered. God had a proven track record with Adam. For example, Adam was provided with a place to live, a job to hold down, and company to …keep. The sinister serpent had no proven track record, and offered hissed at promises through a slimy mouth, slithering movements, and sneaky eyes. It seems to me that Adam and Eve at least could have shown the respect of talking the situation over with God first before taking a forbidden leap into the unknown. (MORE)
It's not a gland I'm afraid. Its a protrusion from the cartilage surrounding the larynx (your voicebox) called the laryngeal prominence. It grows larger in males during puberty, hence the sexual dichotomy.
Both males and females have a thyroid cartilage in the front oftheir throats. It is only because in males that it is moredeveloped, and larger, that makes it more apparent. That's the way humans are. It makes mens voices deeper.
because of their fatty skin the voice box is invisible as they are very mota
All humans, male and female have an "adam's apple", or laryngeal prominence. This prominence is much more protruding and visible in adult males because of the elongation of the thyroid cartilage during puberty.
Well, only men get Adams Apple but U don't get it when your still small age of when it happens depends on the person thing It's good cos so then when your on the phone you'll know if its and man or women. Even if U get it U really shouldn't be ashamed or anything as every man will get (the lump) it …eventually. (MORE)
Men generally have a deeper voice than women and to accomodate for this difference, their voice box, which is referred to as the Adam's Apple in men, has more muscles in it, to produce a deeper sound, thus it is more prominent, whereas women have a soft voice, so their larynx does not have such feat…ures and they have a smaller voice box, and no visible Adam's Apple.

Center of your neck under the base of lower jaw. It is a small portion under you chin that you can feel when you gulp. .
It should be nothing to worry about. The changes happening can cause aches and pains. It should go by itself after a while but if not then ask the Doctor to prescribe some medication for it.
Its under the chin. In puberty, teenage boys get an Adams apple for their voice to get deeper. From :)
No and yes. An Adams apple is just a term for the the bump on men's, teens, and some preteens throats. It develops when the boy or preteen goes through puberty. Some teens get and Adams apple then his voice deepens, for others its the other way around. I bet that sounded like I'm a doctor or a scien…tist but I am 11 years old. But I insure you this information is all true. thank you for listening. :) (MORE)
When a girls Adam's apple is larger than many other girls, her voice will be deeper but it is really is normal that some will have one a little bigger than some others.
The Adam's apple is just the visualization of the thyroid cartilage. It occurs in men because the larynx enlarges during puberty. This is also why a man's voice is lower than a woman's. If a boy is going through puberty and his larynx doesn't lengthen, or if it doesn't lengthen much, he may not deve…lop a viable Adam's apple and his voice would remain higher than it would have otherwise.

This occurs when you start puberty and becomes its' largest as your voice finally deepens. I don't think that you are completely through puberty. Men don't fully mature until age 22-25.
An Adam's Apple is not an organ or gland, as many assume; it's merely a protuberance (bump) on the throat caused by the largest cartilage of the larynx. It is not, as often stated, unique to men. However, when boys go through puberty their voice box shifts (and their voice gets deeper), which tends …to cause the throat cartilage to become angled outward. This causes the "adam's apple" lump in the throat. Many men have this feature, and on some it's very pronounced. However, in some women the cartilage is noticeable, while some men have no noticeable bump. It is a myth that you can tell for certain if someone had a sex chance from male to female by looking for an Adam's apple. (MORE)
The Adam's Apple is the common name of the laryngeal prominence in the neck caused by the larynx and associated structures in the neck. All people have this, men have more prominence than women since the size of their vocal cords are bigger with their deeper voices after puberty. Its inherited featu…res are the size of the larynx and the length and thickness of the neck that allow the prominence to be more obvious. (MORE)
because he was thiking how to describe it, and btw back then the apple was most common fruit so it was comparative to an apple
The medical term for the Adam's apple is the thyroid cartilage. It is found in both males and females.
The size of the Adams apple isn't directly related to the depth of your voice. (If it is at all) my voice is deeper than 98% of white males but I have a smaller Adams apple than most people. If you're over 16 it probly won't get much deeper. But it is possibe that it will. It varries from person to …person. (MORE)
Well, since women don't have an Adams apple(as I understand it) then logically you can speak without one...if only it were true, though...
Look at left and right sides/ends of the apple. You'll see a small circle on each end. That's a post that goes through the apple. Each end of that post has a 'lip', similar to the 'head of a pin', keeping the pieces from sliding off. There's a split in each end of that post, enabling you to squeeze …it slightly. Squeezing it will make the end a tiny bit smaller, just enough for the first piece to come off. Or you can use a Leatherman tool and just PRY/POP the end piece off, like my son did! I hope that helps! (MORE)
Yes, the adams apple is the key to people's magical power, and cutting that off will cause a violent reaction, causing blood to pour out of their eyes.
Yes, the thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland located just below and to either side of the Adam's apple.
Adam's apple growth is common in hilly area. There is shortage of iodine (Sodium or potassium iodide.) in there diet. There is growth of thyroid gland in order to trap the available iodine in the water. This growth does not hurt normally but disfigure the person, usually a poor lady from developing …country. (MORE)
