Code:
body {

THANK YOU! I added that line to the EPUB file I was testing above and the hyphenation is back to exactly how I remember it before, i.e. none.

To those people commenting on the example I used and saying that it doesn't seem like a lot, you are right, but what I meant was that the books were going from having absolute no words being hyphenated on each page to 5-7 words on each page which in my eyes was a lot. I just personally find it distracting and wasn't happy with the fact that it suddenly appeared in the 1.2 update.
