PHOENIX -- Next month marks Breast Cancer Awareness month, so 3TV wants to bring you tips and advice on living and eating well.

On Good Morning Arizona, we talked to Dr. Tony O'Donnell, known as "The Herb Doc."  He gave us five ways to protect ourselves agains breast cancer and live a healthier life.

1. Do self-exams and get mammograms."Research indicates that the first thing women should do is self-examination," he says. He says many women don't get exams because they are afraid of what they might find.

2. Exercise.

3. Stop smoking. "That is a big big issue," he says. "It causes a lot of cancer."

4. Avoid trans-fats.

5. Eat more fruits and vegetables, especially dark, leafy greens. "We should be consuming 13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day, but most of us don't," he says.

Irish-born Tony O’Donnell was inspired to a career as a naturopath by his father’s death from heart disease. Tony has devoted his life to helping others lead a healthy lifestyle. He is the author of 10 books on healthy living, wellness and personal empowerment. He's also a TV and radio host, and a humanitarian.
