As a high school biology teacher, I get asked several anatomy questions

that I find hard to address.  1) What is the purpose of the Adam's

apple and why do only male's have them?  2) Why do males have nipples?

And would it be possible for them to produce milk?  3) What about the

Bible's rib story and actual male and female ribs?  I would like some

thoughtful responses to give the students.  Thanks.
