In brief: Can't
Sarcomas, like all malignancies, ultimately involve mutations that dysregulates growth and multiplication of particular cells in the body.
Although exposure to mutagens(e.G x-rays, chemicals) or having an inherited mutation (e.g. Li fraumeni syndrome) may markedly increase risk, random errors accumulate and no one is exempt. You can mitigate but not completely prevent sarcomas.
