The thyroid cartilage at the front of the neck, known as the Adam’s apple, seems to be more prominent in men than in women. Hence, the story that it was part of the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden that got stuck in Adam’s throat. Curiously enough, the forbidden fruit, for many centuries, was thought to have been the pomegranate. Early Hebrew versions of the Bible state it was the pomegranate and it was only with the advent of the Christian Bible that the pomegranate was substituted for the apple. Adam’s pomegranate somehow does not have the same ring to it. We should be grateful for this every time we think about our Adam’s apple.
