The Adam’s apple, also known as Adam’s apple, is a prominence produced on the anterior edge of the thyroid cartilage whose main function is to protect the walls, the front part of the larynx and the vocal cords, which are located just behind.
It is considered a secondary sexual characteristic of the male sex.
Another function of the Adam’s apple has to do with deepening the voice. And it is that, during adolescence, the thyroid cartilage grows hand in hand with the larynx. As a consequence, this laryngeal bulge increases in size, especially in men.
In summary, a larger sound box is created in the voice apparatus, thus obtaining a much lower tone of voice.
