Theanalysis of the EU burden of health inequity stands at some 100,000 avoidabledeaths (4% of those under 80) when using global healthy/feasible/sustainablemodels, and 6 times higher (in number-close to 600,000- and proportion- 23%-)when using EU national and subnational health/feasible standards. Healthinequity hits harder Eastern Europe (mainly Bulgaria and the Baltic countries),and middle age men, but with higher sensitivity analysis (smaller sample size)it detects health inequities in all sex, age groups and regions.Therelation between the most efficient use of economic (and its relation withnatural) resources of the HF(S) models, and the present shape and dynamics ofincome distribution opens t a new research area: the economics of equity: equinomics. Equityincome curves compatible with the right to health and life (life expectancyfeasible for all) call for ethical global, regional and regional redistributionsystems.Atthe EU level, the limited sampling power of the EU national analysis narrowsthe equity zone, ut the higher-sensitive subnational level of analysis allowsto see that possibly only half of the burden of health inequity is due to theshadows of the deficit zone, and a major degree of ill health is in areas ofequity and even excess accumulation.Thelevel of EU resource flows is far above what´s needed for the best feasiblewellbeing standards. Disposing of such excess would allow EU redistribution toprevent from EU citizens living in the "deficit" zone (causing some400,000 avoidable deaths every year) andonly better lives for all Europeans but also allow global redistribution toenable all world citizens to escape the deficit zone (and prevent over 15million deaths per year) and still ample space of resources or direct the samepresent levels into knowledge of sustainable economies (e.g. fusion) or dowithout such excess and work less, produce less, consume less and possibly(letting go off the cortisol-driven biodynamics) live more
