In brief: Be healthy!
Studies have shown all the other things that are good for us are also good at preventing colon ca.
Daily exercise, maintaining an appropriate weight and a diet rich in leafy greens and vegetables, having regular bm's are all very helpful. For high risk people (family history, certain diseases) daily low dose aspirin/nsaid's are also helpful in large studies that have looked at many other factors.

In brief: Be healthy
Eat healthy low fat foods, high in fiber, fruits and vegetables.
Avoid a lot of meats and fats. Maintain a healthy weight, and be active or exercise. Use of vitamin d and Aspirin has been under review as possible preventative measures to discuss with your doctor. Colonoscopy does not prevent cancer, but can remove pre-cancerous growths or polyps and can locate early tumors.
