Well, we can't do your assignment for you, but let me give you some ideas to think about including that might help you do it on your own.

1)  Diet - Americans consume a lot of fat and a lot of salt.  Extra fat tissue adds miles of capillaries for blood to feed, and affects circulation to the rest of the body.  Salt tends to raise blood pressure, also affecting circulation.

2)  Lack of exercise - America has an obesity issue, and we spend a lot of hours on the couch, in front of the television, doing anything but exercising.  This makes our heart weaker over time, and combined with our diet adds to the circulation problems.

3)  Work schedule - Americans work more hours and take less vacations than almost any country on Earth.  The stress we put ourselves through to earn the money it takes to support a modern lifestyle affects blood pressure and heart rate, and makes us more prone to heart attacks.

Typical lifestyles of today have a significant impact on circulation. For example, many foods that are consumed on a daily basis are high in cholesterol. This cholesterol can build up over time in the blood vessels and cause blockages which can be very deadly. In addition, we spend a lot less time exercising and more time in front of the television and/or computer. Because of this, our hearts are not getting the strength needed to pump blood effectively throughout the body. It is important that we try to eat a well balanced and nutritious diet, get plenty exercise, and get plenty of sleep so that our bodies can be as healthy as possible. Circulation problems lead to many health issues.

The affects of modern lifestyle of the blood circulation can be attributed to several facts.

People pay very less attention to what they eat. There is a lot of reliance on fast food instead of the whole meals that we had earlier. The food today is loaded with unhealthy fats and excessive carbohydrates which are converted to fat in due course. This increases the cholesterol levels in the blood and changes the ratio of its constituents.

People also lead very sedentary lifestyles and the excessive use of machines has led to a decrease in exercise of any form. With a lack of exercise again the circulatory system is adversely affected.

Stress is also a leading cause of ailments as when we are stressed our body alters our blood supply, and diverts it to areas that are considered essential for survival in case of emergencies. When this is prolonged it leads to damage.
