the inspiration for today’s fact actually came to us whilst watching queer eye … actually really like this one 🙌🏻
#tdil the reason why men have a bigger Adam’s apple than women 🍏
so, as you may or may not know, both men and women have an adam’s apple … that’s the lump that can be seen on people’s necks 👍🏻
it’s actually a chunk of cartilage that is wrapped around the larynx. it sits right at the top of the thyroid gland and is also known as the thyroid cartilage #makessense
but, if we all have them, why are adam’s apples on dudes so much more prominent? 🤔 it’s apparently to do with guys having more testosterone than women.
as you may know, guys have more testosterone in their bodies due to their downstairs mix up 🍆 this additional testosterone increases the size of the muscles surrounding the vocal cords.
this causes the adam’s apple to be more prominent … and is also the reason why guys tend to have a deeper voice 😊
and there you go! you’re now a little bit cleverer than you were a moment ago 😘
byeeee 😆 #tdil
