What’s an Adam’s Apple?

The larynx, or voice box, is one of the many body parts that grows during puberty for both male and female bodies. The larynx on female bodies usually does not grow as much as the ones on male bodies, which tend to stick out as a bump on the front of the throat and is called an “Adam’s Apple”.  This larger larynx is responsible for making male voices deeper – squeaky voices during puberty just mean that the larynx is changing size.
