Ribs and Apples
Sounds good. Did the title make you hungry? Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm going to talk about the two parts of our bodies that are associated with Adam. Also, there may be some misconceptions or legends related to these two body parts. Have you ever heard or believed that men have one less rib than women or that women aren't supposed to have an Adam's apple?
There is a legend that men have one rib fewer than women, and originates from the Bible's description of the creation of Eve (from the rib of Adam). Both sexes have the same number of ribs. A possible explanation of the myth is that missing floating ribs occur more often in women.
Have you ever seen a woman that may have some masculine features and you notice that she has a prominent Adam's apple so you conclude that she has to really be a man. Not so quick. The larynx grows during puberty in males much more than in females, and as a result the laryngeal prominence more commonly known as the Adam's apple is typically more prominent in adult men than in women or pre-pubescent girls or boys. This growth of the larynx is also the reason for the voice breaking in teenage boys. The laryngeal prominence is obvious in both sexes, but it tends to be larger in the adult male.
