In brief: Changes

Well, there is no hard core scientific evidence that will tell you that a specific kind of a diet will decrease your chances of getting colon cancer in the future.
I do recommend a high fiber, low in red meat diet. Sometimes I also recommend a gluten free diet. I do believe that the cause of colon cancer lies in something environmental that affects ppl that are genetically susceptible.
