A study finds coffee can play a protective role in preventing type 2 diabetes. (Jenny Lee Molina)

Two new studies are out this week that look at diets that can either increase or decrease ones risk of developing diabetes.

The first study says coffee can play a protective role in preventing the disease, while the other study is the first to find that a higher dietary acid load — such as a diet rich in animal products — can increase ones risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

NPR’s Allison Aubrey joins Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to discus the findings.
