today i learned – thurs 9th aug 2018

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
