The human throat is house to many things, aside for the fact that therein lays the passage through which your swallowed food and liquids get into the body. Where are your vocal cords and where are your adenoids? Where would you find the epiglottis?
The throat is a term loosely applied to the part of the neck in front of the backbone. The throat contains structures important in breathing and eating. These include the pharynx, the larynx, part of the oesophagus and part of the trachea.
