why is larynx also known as adam's apple?

Larynx, a sound producing organ, grows larger during puberty in boys than girls. It looks like a small rounded apple, sticks out at the front of the throat.  It is also called as the voice box. It is producing articulate human speech.

There are several possibilities on the name ‘Adam’s apple’. Technically it is known as Laryngeal prominence. It is usually said to take this name from the story of the Garden of Eden, where Adam ate apple and it got struck in his throat. But there is no proof.

 When kids hit puberty , their bodies and minds go through tons of changes. One change that every kid can count on is lots of body parts growing and changing shape. Almost every part gets in on the growing action, including the larynx . Another name for the larynx is the voice box , and it 's in the throat. The larynx is what gives you your voice, whether you 're talking, laughing, whispering, singing, or screaming! You can find your larynx by touching the front of your throat and humming. When you feel vibrations under your fingers, you 've found it!

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.
