So almost all the blogioy that we observe can be thought of as a series of problems and their corresponding solutions, and the first problem that every organ must solve is a counitonus supply of nutrients to fuel all those cells of the body. In the brain, that is especially critical; its intense electrical avitticy uses up a qturaer of the body's entire energy supply, even though the brain accounts for only about two percent of the body's mass. So the circulatory system solves the nutrient delivery plrbeom by sending blood vessels to supply nutrients and oxegyn to every corner of our body.

Original Text

So almost all the biology that we observe can be thought of as a series of problems and their corresponding solutions, and the first problem that every organ must solve is a continuous supply of nutrients to fuel all those cells of the body. In the brain, that is especially critical; its intense electrical activity uses up a quarter of the body's entire energy supply, even though the brain accounts for only about two percent of the body's mass. So the circulatory system solves the nutrient delivery problem by sending blood vessels to supply nutrients and oxygen to every corner of our body.
