The Snowflake Effect The Accumulation of Stress on the Body By Nikki Campanale There's a fable about a little bird and a mouse discussing the weight of a snowflake. It was the dead of winter and all the other woodland animals were hibernating. The bird and the mouse made their home in the same tree, so when the mouse woke up and saw the bird sitting on a branch he decided to make his way over for a chat. During the conversation, the mouse asked the bird if he knew how much a snowflake weighed. The bird answered, "One little snowflake? Well, it weighs nothing at all. A snowflake weighs so little that it is almost insignificant."
