In brief: Lifestyle
Nothing can prevent colon cancer, but high fiber diet, low fat, minimal alcohol, low red meat, can all be helpful.

In brief: High fiber diet
You may not be able to prevent colon cancer but eating a high fiber diet will decrease your risk significantly.
Studies have shown that populations that eat a large amount of unprocessed food, like whole grains, fruits and vegetables instead of hot dogs, have a low incidence of colon cancer. Nitrates in processed meats should especially be avoided if you are pursuing a colon healthy diet.
