Adam's apple


The prominent lump in the human throat took its name "Adam's apple," from an old superstitious belief.

Everyone is familiar with the story of Adam and Eve.  But what many people might be acquainted with is how the Bible story was actually embellished.  


It was said that when Adam swallowed the forbidden fruit, one large piece of the apple remained in his throat and formed a lump there.  


The lump in every man's throat was named for the very first man, and so the "Adam's apple" was born.
