How One Comma Changes The World

Editors, Writers and Bloggers, which is correct in your opinion style 1 or style 2 (notice the comma after the egg):
STYLE 1: John went to the store to buy bacon, eggs and milk.
STYLE 2: John went to the store to buy bacon, eggs, and milk.
In Nigeria I was taught to use the first style. But after having my “How Laziness Saved My Life” Manuscript edited by Cathy Reed (awesome editor) she changed it all to style 2. I started doing a bit of investigation and found out that there is a huge controversy between the styles. What are you thoughts and which of the styles do you use?
