It was Dr. Paul Kouchakoff, who during a microbiology congress held in Paris in 1930 revealed that leukocytes are proteins that change their structure according to heat, that is, when a food has a longer cooking time and reaches greater Temperature can lead to a larger leukocytosis, hence overcooked food may not be the best option to maintain a healthy diet.
