Can you live without an Adam's Apple?
I guess so. I don't have a visible one.
Hmm . Maybe . This question isn't silly like it seems .
NJ I was under the impression after all this time that you were a woman!
:tongue: I am. I'm just asking a question. Y'all seem to have a few parts that don't do anything.
I've never had one, so i guess i could. I'm not sure i could live without a Granny Smith apple though. I love those.
Women have the same structure.... its just smaller.
Testosterone causes the larynx to become larger and thicker in males which affects the timbre of the voice- deepening the vocal range as a secondary sexual characteristic.
Women's are not only smaller... but women have an extra subdermal layer of fatty tissue that softens all of their body contours... why even fit women show so little muscle definition.
Women who achieve ultra low body fat levels will often have visible Adam's apples.
PS- yes you can live without it.
Those people who breathe thru a hole in their neck have had theirs' removed due to cancer or other disease.
The structure also has the flapper valve that keeps food from going down your lungs... when they remove your larynx, they route the windpipe thru the front of your neck so your throat can go to your stomach only.
i think you can live w/out it....this is what i found. and good question!
When the larynx or voicebox 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 larynx doesn't grow as much as a boy's does. This larger larynx gives boys deeper voices.
The primary purpose of the larynx is to close off the airway when swallowing. The closure of the vocal folds, in addition to other forms of constriction, protects the lungs from the aspiration of food or liquid into the airway. The second purpose of the larynx is to create voice. Within the larynx are the vocal folds, which are responsible for producing sound, or phonation.
Does that mean that men with more prominent Adam's Apples have deeper voices?
Yes like Chuck Norris .:biggrin1:
Today's stupid question....
I don't have a visible adam's apple too, dont really affect any thing
I love apples.
Same here :smile:
