Biography

Arette left Metropolitan France for French Indochina in 1949 as a red beret [fr].[2] After being wounded, he was honored by the Legion of Honour and awarded a Médaille militaire. He returned to France in 1953 and took over his parents' farm and joined the Centre National des Jeunes Agriculteurs [fr]. In 1967, he served as director of the Festival de Siros and became vice-president of the Académie de Béarn in 1970. From 1982 to 1991, he was president of the Fédération française de l'agriculture.[3]

In 1986, Arette was elected to the Regional Council of Aquitaine on the list of the National Front,[4] and re-elected in 1992.[5]

In 2001, Arette published the book Les Dieux du crépuscule, which theorized that mad cow disease had been instrumented by the Americans.[6]

Arette died on 15 January 2023, at the age of 95.[7]

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad cow disease, is an incurable and invariably fatal neurodegenerative disease of cattle. Symptoms include abnormal behavior, trouble walking, and weight loss. Later in the course of the disease the cow becomes unable to function normally. There is conflicting information around the time between infection and onset of symptoms. In 2002, the WHO suggested it to be approximately four to five years. Time from onset of symptoms to death is generally weeks to months. Spread to humans is believed to result in variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (vCJD). As of 2018, a total of 231 cases of vCJD had been reported globally.
