In brief: DIet Exercise

Regular exercise.
Eat healthy. Less fat in the diet. Limit processed meats, fish and poultry rather than red meats. Lots of fruits and vegetables. Avoid obesity.

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.
