There is a solution, but it's really particular and it requires great investments.I am no expert on these field but i am aware that the lowgravity seemed to be the biggest thread for settlers on the mars .All other threats you have listed human can protect themself by sophisticated Marsbases.But it is possible to simulate the gravity on earth with a machine but this would cost also an amount of money.
To enter into details, Mars offers a potential natural artificial [!!! curious definition!] satellite where to create a human settlement with dimensions comparable to the ones of a great city.
Phobos. Excavating it we could realize an artificial space station in a natural satellite. Deimos would be more challenging.
But this is science fiction: reality is that robotic industrial settlements on Martian surface can be "aided" by human crews organized to spend on Mars no mode than 4 - 6 months [6 months only in case of emergency or extraordinary conditions].
